Social activities will be offered on most afternoons and evenings each week. Possible activities might include:

  • A visit to the King’s College Chapel
  • A walk along the River Cam
  • To take tea at The Orchard Tea Room at Grantchester
  • A visit to the Fitzwilliam museum
  • A tour of the University Botanic Garden


Saturday 24 August will be spent in London where there will be the option to join a specially organised tour, together with free time to explore the city’s many sights.


Sunday 25 August will be spent visiting nearby Ely and its magnificent cathedral.
