Cambridge University - Did you know?

In 1828, Charles Darwin came to left Edinburgh for Cambridge, where he was to study for becoming a priest. While he earned his bachelor of arts degree in 1831, he was pre-occupied with something else – he spent all of his spare time with two Cambridge professors, geologist Adam Sedgwick and botanist John Henslow, where he would become greatly interested in the study of rocks, fossils, plants and animals and later form the natural selection theory of evolution, upon which modern evolutionary theory is built!



With a passion for the city’s history and architecture as well as the knowledge and experience of an insider, the tour guides at Cambridge Alumni Tours are either graduates or current students of the University of Cambridge. You hear all about what the students really get up to – from “college parents” to lavish May Balls and the dreaded all-nighters in-between. As well as getting the insider info you also get to see inside two colleges on this tour.

So why not get a proper insight into Cambridge from the very students who live there!
