Au programme

Our walking tour takes in some of the famous colleges and historic sights of the city as you meander down quaint alleyways and tread the cobbled streets. You will hear quirky facts and stories of the colleges and their colourful alumni, all set within the context of English and world history, plus many fascinating tales of city life through the ages not generally mentioned in the guide books. We will take you to a church 1000 years old and reveal it’s hidden secret, down side streets to places of interest visitors don't normally see. You will go back in time to medieval Cambridge to discover how the University all started, visiting colleges over 700 years old and hearing their history. We will show you what it is to experience life as a student in a Cambridge College. All our tours are unique as we specialise in small groups and encourage interaction and questions.
Highlights of our walking tour include The Senate House, The Colleges of Gonville & Caius, Trinity, St John’s, Kings, Clare, Corpus Christie, Pembroke, Peterhouse and Queens. St Benet's church, an unusual clock, the historic Eagle pub, The Cavendish Labs, and the Mathematical Bridge

Hello my name is Tim, I run my own tour company called Guide and Peek Cambridge. I came to be a student in Cambridge over 40 years ago. I fell in love with the city then, and remain so to this day. I am a local historian with an intimate knowledge of the City, University Colleges and their colourful alumni. Having taken early retirement I am now fulfilling my dream of sharing this beautiful city and its quirky facts and stories with others. I set up my tours 2018 and have received high praise for them as the 5 star Airbnb reviews testify

Tim was a charismatic host who helped bring the history of Cambridge to life. We learned a lot about the Colleges, as well as history of the university and the lasting impact it has on modern day Cambridge. Thank you Tim for the wonderful tour!

Tim provided a very knowledgeable walking tour. It was wonderful to have someone so easily approachable and full of humour. We learnt so much more with an experienced guide. Definitely recommended.

So great to meet Tim and learn all about Cambridge colleges history. Tim was a great storyteller and happy to answer questions. Made us feel super welcome. Allow 2 hours as Tim is generous with his time & you don’t want to miss the end like I did (as I had a prior engagement). Excellent value for money, would highly recommend.

Great tour of Cambridge, really enjoyed it. Tim obviously has a wealth of knowledge and enjoys sharing it in an engaging way. It brought Cambridge to life in a way that just walking around on your own can't do.
