Curious Cambridge - Cambridge's Most Entertaining History Tour

Terrible Tours

Select Option


Hear the whole story of Cambridge. From rank Romans, through scary Saxons, vile Vikings and nasty Normans, the ‘Cam-bridge’ was at the centre of English history for over a thousand years before the University was even founded. And learn about what 800 years of dreadful Dons and sickening Students have got up to since, in the company of one of our expertly entertaining guides. If you want a long talk about different types of arches we are not for you - if you want to learn by laughing we are!
