Cambridge and Oxford Historic Colleges of Britain Day Trip: including a visit to the Bridge of Sighs

Find your own inspiration in the sense of tradition and intellectual curiosity that pervades this lovely City. You will visit Christchurch College, where Harry Potter scenes were filmed and where Albert Einstein studied. On your walking tour of Oxford you will see the Bodleian library and the picture-perfect College courtyards for which Oxford is justifiably famous.

Through scenic countryside to Cambridge, bridging centuries of scholarly rivalry between these two venerable institutions! Cambridge’s stately Gothic style College buildings rise spectacularly from the greenery along the River Cam where students and visitors enjoy punting along the River.

You will visit the magnificent perpendicular chapel of King’s College, founded in 1441, which is the finest and grandest example of late medieval Gothic architecture in England, and a fitting tribute to the great minds that have studied here. During your walking tour of the city filled with beautiful buildings and historical quirks, you’ll visit the so-called “Bridge of Sighs”, named after its look-a-like in Venice and several other Colleges that make up the University, each with their own stories to tell.
