What to expect

The universities of Oxford and Cambridge are renowned world-over, not only for being prestigious educational institutions but also for their famous alumni, historic rivalry and for being in beautiful cities. On this day tour, you will be led by an expert guide who will give you fascinating facts, juicy tidbits and the history of the streets you're walking through. You will begin in historical Cambridge, the second oldest English-speaking university in the world, which, ironically, was founded by a group of rebel Oxford scholars in 1209. Here you'll enjoy strolling by the River Cam where you're sure to see some traditional punting, a boating sport which is vital to Cambridge culture. You'll explore King's College, whose medieval Gothic architecture is some of the best in the world, and learn about its famous alumni, including Charles Darwin, Alan Turing and Oliver Cromwell.

Next you'll head to Oxford, the arch-rival to Cambridge, home to the oldest English-speaking university in the world dating back to the 11th century and to buildings from every period in English history. Its eclectic mix of architecture will soon make it clear why Oxford is affectionately known as 'The City of Dreaming Spires'. Christ Church College is arguably the most famous part of the university, having been founded by Henry VIII, and functions as the UK's smallest cathedral. You might recognize it from films such as The Golden Compass and Harry Potter, as its architecture is so grand and beautiful. Choose this tour and choose your side as you discover Oxford and Cambridge.
