Your group (of 13 to 24 people) will divide into four groups which will each take part in three or four activities, including a House Tour. Everyone will enjoy a Tour and a Talk or a Walk as well as some time to enjoy the local area or a trip into the centre of Cambridge.
If you have specific requirements then we can discuss them, however we have crafted a choice of activities which we hope you’ll really enjoy. Talks take place in the relaxed environment of the Visitor Centre directly next door to the David Parr House at 184 Gwydir Street.
