Cambridge is home to some spectacular architecture, fantastic art collections and beautiful gardens. Open Cambridge is a weekend of tours, talks and open access in which University and College buildings and collections will go on show for families, local residents and community groups.

You will be able to meet University and College members face to face and find out about Cambridge’s role on a local and global scale over the past 800 years.
Tours cover topics such as the history, architecture, art and gardens of College and University buildings. Explore exciting collections and manuscripts as College and Departmental libraries open their doors to the public.
