About Round Church Guided Walks
Round Church Guided Walks combine engaging tours of historic Cambridge with tantalising intellectual history to create a truly unique experience of one of the world's oldest university cities. Weaving together stories about major figures in the history of the University, our well-informed guides cover a range of subjects. These include the rise of the University from Christian monasteries, the relationship between science and faith, the abolition of slavery, and the Protestant Reformation. Tours depart from the Round Church Visitor Centre daily (2pm from Monday - Saturday; 2:30pm on Sundays) and include entrance into the Round Church Visitor Centre and several major colleges. The cost is £10 (£8 for students) - offering great value for money for a tour which delves deep into Cambridge's unique past. Private tours may also be booked online
