Very informative and interesting. Jon was our guide. He does the tours on Thursdays. He is knowledgeable and very accommodating as we had two small children with us. So much fascinating history that you wouldn't get touring on your own.

Located in the city centre, Round Church is the oldest church in Cambridge and in top 5 of England. This place is suitable for people who wants to find out more about Medieval architecture and Cambridge heritages.

A beautiful old church! If you go in Cambridge you must visit it, is one of the oldest churches I ever seen.

Recently re-roofed and refurbished, this little gem of a building stands on the edge of the central shopping area of Cambridge and offers a cool and inviting oasis on a hot day to sit and meditate. A warm and welcoming place.

The visitor centre is great to go to before touring Cambridge as it gives the history before you see everything! It's inexpensive too!

This is a stunning crusader church built by Knights Templar around 1130, inspired by the Church of the holy sepulchre in Jerusalem. Think da Vinci Code. It's tiny but lovely. The video, though, while claiming to be about the history of Cambridge was actually thinly...More

Was well worth a visit although very small it is very unusual in its rondal shape. Also gave an opportunity to take photographs of the two reindeers in a stall and santa's sleigh which were in front of the church entrance. Very pleasant young lady...More
