Lewis and Bill Clinton.

The unspoiled narrow alleys and ancient squares of Oxford will captivate you with their natural beauty and rich history.

Christ Church visit in Oxford:

If you are a fan of Harry Potter films, a visit to Christ Church will amaze you even more. Marvel at the magical grandeur of the Great Hall, used as the setting for Hogwarts.

Cambridge

After departing Oxford, you’ll head to the beautiful city of Cambridge, home to the world-renowned University of Cambridge. Here, you’ll visit Senate House, a historic building once used by the Council of the Senate for important meetings and now the venue for students’ degree ceremonies. You’ll have the opportunity to explore this significant location and learn about its rich history before continuing on to see the fascinating Corpus Clock.

Discover the Corpus Clock, a fascinating timepiece located outside the Taylor Library at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge University. Unveiled by Stephen Hawking, this unique invention features a 24-carat gold-plated stainless steel disc without traditional numbers. Instead, it displays the time through a series of lights shining through individual slits. This innovative and memorable clock is sure to leave a lasting impression long after your visit.

Mathematical Bridge
During your stop in Cambridge, you’ll have the chance to see the renowned Mathematical Bridge. Designed by William Etheridge nearly 300 years ago, this architectural marvel has captivated visitors worldwide. The bridge, which intriguingly uses only straight timbers to form its arch, presents a fascinating conundrum. Its unique design and historical significance make it an absolute must-see on your visit.

King’s College Chapel
One of the main highlights of the trip is a visit to the magnificent King’s College Chapel. Symbolic of the city of Cambridge, the Chapel attracts tourists from around the globe. Construction began in 1446, initiated by Henry VI, and spanned a century. King’s College Chapel is celebrated for its stunning Gothic architecture and enchanting stained glass windows. It boasts the world’s largest fan vault and features famous artwork by Rubens. Home to the renowned King’s College Chapel Choir, the Chapel offers a wealth of history and beauty to discover.
