Guided Walks of Cambridge Colleges

 
We have been running our highly acclaimed Round Church guided walks of Cambridge for nearly 20 years. There is perhaps no place in the world which better displays the fruitful interplay between science, Christian faith, and intellectual and moral progress. This is due to the scientific and moral achievements of Cambridge luminaries, including Isaac Newton, Francis Bacon, William Wilberforce, and James Clark Maxwell. Come along to explore the beautiful streets and buildings of the city, and learn about some of the people who helped to shape Western civilization. 
 
Regular Scheduled Guided Walks

SUNDAY – CLOSED (NO WALK)
2.15pm Monday–Saturday

 

The cost is £12 per person, £10 for students and free for children under 12. Each walk lasts around 90 minutes.

To reserve a space on a scheduled walk, please complete our booking form.
 

Reformation Guided Walks

By Special Request

The Protestant Reformation was a key event in creating the modern world and in forming the English national identity. It revitalised Christianity, it gave us the bible in English, it established the Church of England and other Protestant denominations, it raised the status of marriage and the family, it encouraged literacy and education, it empowered ordinary people and helped to promote parliamentary government and, last but not least, the United States of America was founded under its influence.

Was the Reformation all good? No. There was iconoclasm, witch-burning, intolerance and religious strife, which compromised the story but did not overshadow its enormous achievements. In all this Cambridge was central and crucial. To best understand and appreciate the story you can go on a Reformation guided walk and see the sites – churches, colleges and landmarks – and hear about the people – bible scholars, preachers and martyrs – in the drama that still influences us to this day. Request a Reformation walk here.
