This 1.5-hour walking tour covers the years that C S Lewis spent in Cambridge in the 1950s and early 1960s. We shall walk some of the streets he walked, listen to some quotes from his books read out loud, and if anyone is willing, even talk about some of the topics which interested him. Lewis once said "I can’t imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once.” This tour will show you that C S Lewis was more than the famous author who wrote The Chronicles of Narnia.

Great Tour, Great Guide, Great Time!

I went on the CS Lewis tour and it was a great experience. Would highly recommend taking any tour with this guide, as he is very knowledgeable and conversational! My only regret is that I only had time to do one tour!

Jed M.

Thank you. It was a pleasure to show you how Cambridge has links with C S Lewis. Feel free to come on another tour next time you come to Cambridge!

Cambridge
1 hour 30 min

Un tour a pie que revela cómo Cambridge ha sido un nido de espias durante 5 siglos. Desde la época de la dinastía Tudor hasta los conflictos armados del siglo veintiuno varias agencias de espionaje han reclutado personas que residieron en Cambridge. Aunque cueste creerlo, algunas de las acciones de estos agentes cambiaron el curso de importantes acontecimientos históricos . Atención a quienes son fans del agente 007: en este tour os espera una sorpresa (o mejor dicho más de una) respecto a él.
