The Basics

Stop by Trinity College independently and explore the architectural and historical highlights at your own pace with a self-guided audio tour. Alternatively, take an in-person tour—these typically include visits to other Cambridge colleges such as King’s and Pembroke—to gain a deeper understanding of the Trinity College history. First-time visitors may even prefer to combine an introductory city tour with a stop at Trinity College or opt for a full-day excursion to both Cambridge University and Oxford University.

We had a tour guide Claire who was absolutely amazing. The whole tour from start to finish was interesting. The walk around was beautiful. I would recommend everyone visiting Cambridge to book this tour. I feel it’s important to have a tour guide from a student- past or present. Jo and Paul

We were very fortunate to have Becky as our tour guide. She is a graduate of Cambridge University and is currently studying there for a post-graduate qualification. She had excellent knowledge of the numerous Colleges that are part of the university and gave us an informative and entertaining 90 minute walking tour. Highly recommended.

Our tour guide spoke clearly and the volume of his speech was such that even my friend, who wears hearing aids, was able to hear everything that he said. The tour was very interesting, and would only have been improved if we could have gone into a college or two.

Our guide (Claire) was very knowledgable about Cambridge Uni and told us a lot of unknown interesting facts about the place. We were shown around Trinity and Kings Colleges and other lovely places close by. As someone who had never been to Cambridge before, this tour made my visit far more enjoyable.

Punting at Trinity College

Punts are flat-bottomed boats designed to be used in shallow waters and are propelled forward by pushing the riverbed using a long pole. Punting is especially popular along the length of the River Cam and visitors to Trinity College can rent punts by the hour for a small fee. Punts are usually available from the mid-morning to the late afternoon between Easter and mid-October. Alternatively, chauffeured punting excursions are available.
