Go punting in Cambridge and visit the different colleges around the University of Cambridge where notable alumni include Isaac Newton, Alan Turing, and Robert Oppenheimer! 

Castle Mound
We visited Castle Mound first thing for a good walk and a good overlooking view around.

King’s College
We intended to go inside King’s College Chapel at 5 pm but it was already closed by this time because of the summer break.

We enjoyed an Italian meal for lunch. 🙂
Enjoyed coffee as we capped our day in Cambridge!

I highly recommend going punting as you will get a good view of the colleges and the bridges with a tour guide who knows the University of Cambridge and its history so well. 

Cambridge Punting
We enjoyed punting and listening to our tour guide who made it a very fun educational tour for us.


You can also book your Punting Tour online through Klook here to avoid the queue. Cambridge is packed with tourists walking around!

We enjoyed walking around and going inside colleges, too! You can also opt to book a Cambridge University Walking Tour through Klook here which already includes admission to King’s College and King’s College Chapel.
