The Colleges & Corpses Tour is suitable for Wheelchair or mobility scooter users.
Tours go ahead rain or shine - so come prepared for the weather, and perhaps a sudden drop in temperature!
You are very welcome to bring Dogs on the tour - Miss Mary Reeder loves them!
Tours are outside, and you will need to walk and stand for the length of the tour.
The Colleges & Corpses tour is led by a Costumed Actor in Character and is suitable for all ages, as long as they don't mind some creepy stories...
Although this our theatrical tour - Please note on this Tour there is no-one jumping out at you with a rubber mask and fake chainsaw. If you want that experience - you must seek a Horror Maze or Scare House. We have worked in these sort of attractions as Scare Actors and our tour is a very different experience. We are happy to recommend some cracking Scare Attractions however!
Do you want to discover the darkest, most twisted tales of Cambridge? All the stories of the Dead and Undead of the City? Who better to spin those yarns then our very own Cambridge Victorian murderess - Miss Mary Reader. She will take you on a tour, dressed in her Victorian finery, of Cambridge's creepiest Colleges and eeriest alleyways to tell you the stories of Body-snatchers, Burnings & Burials. You'll see the Hangman's house, discover Cambridge's answer to Jack the Ripper - and even ponder your own death...
Find out about Cambridge's very own Vampire, who Mary I burnt in the Market Square and why you may have a skeleton in your closet. Miss Mary grew up with the stories and legends of the Fenland countryside, but is a real expert in the hangings of Cambridge - she'll explain why!
This tour contains all the most horrible history of Cambridge that we can cram in - guts, gore and ghouls - told in a theatrical way by our very own Victorian master story-teller.
Miss Mary Reader may even ask for your help... just don't mention her sister...
This is our THEATRICAL tour - Gothic costumes, tricks & audience participation! Lots of Gallows humour (literally). Think The London Dungeon meets Blackadder. This is the tour most suitable for children. No-one jumps out on this tour, a fact you'll be thankful for .... as you'll be standing on top of thousands of bodies...
