Image supplied by Cambridge Bike Tours
The morning city tour covers the majority of the sights and follows a squiggly line taking in Midsummer Common, Stourbridge Common, Eights Rowing, College Boat Houses, Jesus Green, Round Church (one of only four in the UK), Front of St. Johns College, Trinity Great Gate, Trinity Great Court (subject to side door being open), The Wren Library (subject to time), Garrett Hostel Bridge, Cambridge University Real Tennis Club, The Backs, The Best Spot to take that iconic photo of Kings College Chapel, Senate House, Kings Parade, Corpus Christi Clock, The Eagle Pub, and St. Benets Church.
After a group lunch in town we head out of the city through the fens towards the village of Grantchester to enjoy the river, The Orchard Tea Gardens, The Old Vicarage (previously the home of the poet Rupert Brooke and now the home of the author Jeffrey Archer). Then we sit down for either a cream tea or a pint in a very local British Pub, where we play the oldest recorded pub game called 'ringing the bull' (your drink could be free if you manage to beat the tour guide at this game). You never know you might be sitting next to a Nobel Prize winner as Grantchester has the highest concentration of them in the world.
