Home to one of England’s oldest and most renowned universities, Cambridge is a city steeped in history, from its grand architecture to its long list of notable alumni. With its maze of cobblestone shopping streets dotted with traditional pubs and vast college lawns known as the “Backs” stretching along the scenic River Cam, Cambridge is more than just a lively student town, and at just 50 miles from the capital, it makes a popular day trip from London.

As well as being a key destination on many multi-day tours of England, there are a number of Cambridge tours from London that offer the chance to explore the city’s unique history and heritage. Couple a visit to Cambridge with the equally picturesque Oxford, on a Cambridge and Oxford Historic Colleges of Britain Day Trip, and explore the prestigious universities collectively dubbed “Oxbridge.” You’ll be in good company as you wander through the stately halls of Cambridge University - luminaries from Sir Isaac Newton to C.S. Lewis have studied within these historic rooms, and American visitors will be impressed to learn that John Harvard himself received his degree from Cambridge. The star attraction is the magnificent King's College, an exquisite example of medieval Gothic architecture, but you’ll also have time to take in city landmarks like the Bridge of Sighs or join the locals for a spot of punting along the river.

Alternatively, discover a different side to the city on a Pink Floyd and Pop Culture tour, and journey back to 1960s Cambridge as you follow in the footsteps of the world-famous band. Band members David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Syd Barrett all called Cambridge home before they were famous, and the city’s thriving music scene remains an important part of its cultural heritage.
