This is the guidebook that all visitors to Cambridge will need. Combining an accessible, anecdotal style with accuracy of fact and a wealth of historical detail, it is a book that can be used to accompany a walking tour around the University and colleges, or read at leisure as an authoritative introduction to the city. Packed with newly commissioned colour illustrations and detailed maps, the book is divided helpfully into sections focusing on particular groups of sites within Cambridge. Central attractions (both colleges and other parts of the University, including museums as well as the main churches) receive full entries, and the book also offers historical descriptions of all the outer-lying colleges, making it a comprehensive survey of the collegiate University that can be used for reference. There is an informative introduction, a full list of colleges with foundation dates, a glossary, and a comprehensive index.
