Join a local historian and PhD student, for an excursion down one of Cambridge’s most scenic and peaceful walks; the Backs.  Incidentally, the Backs is the area that runs along many of Cambridge’s famous colleges, is studded with beautiful architecture, a quaint wooden bridge, sprawling green spaces, and quirky stories.  On this private socially-distanced guide, we’ll begin the tour alongside the iconic river at Scudamore's Quayside Walk, over the wooden bridge of Silver Street, and immerse yourself in Cambridge's history, architectural highlights and moving stories.                    Experience iconic key attractions, such as the magnificent views of King's College and its Chapel, Queens College and the Mathematical Bridge. Finish the tour by visiting the beautiful Clare College to cap off this cultural and historic adventure in this must-see picturesque city.  Note: This is a self-guided audio walking tour and does not include entrance tickets
