Enjoy a day excursion to the world famous University City of Cambridge. This trip allows for plenty of free time to explore Cambridge and the many colleges or why not take a walk along the River Cam or hire a punt and explore the river yourself. This tour includes return luxury coach travel, a guided sightseeing tour and entry to the Tower of Saint Mary the Great.
After the central London pickup we begin our journey to Cambridge. Upon arrival you will be given a guided sightseeing tour by your tour manager who will be able to provide you with loads of information and facts about the University City. You will also be given entrance into the Tower of Saint Mary the Great. The tower provides the best panoramic view over the city skyline offering views of the King’s College to the south, Senate House to the east as well as the busy Cambridge Market.
The remainder of the day is left to you to explore. With plenty of things for you to do in Cambridge, we are sure your day will be packed full of exciting activities! Why not visit the popular art and antiquities museum Fitzwilliam Museum (entrance is free) or perhaps visit one of the world's oldest universities and leading academic centers, The University of Cambridge. The university’s reputation for outstanding academic achievement is known world-wide and all of the College chapels are open to the public at select times, and most of the Colleges are also open for visits (a small fee may be charged for visitors and access may be limited during term time). You may also be keen to visit the University’s Botanic where you can discover plants from all over the world in 40 acres of beautiful gardens and glasshouses (admission not included).
After a fun day discovering all that Cambridge has to offer your coach will depart from Cambridge at roughly 4pm (your Tour Manager will inform you of when you need to be back at the coach) and head back to central London with the approximate arrival time of 6pm.
