  1. Jono Pyle says

    When you talked about timing the speed of sound, you were at St John's College cloisters, not the actual one where he did it in Trinity

  2. Jono Pyle says

    Why did you show the wrong colleges when you talked about them? And I saw quite a bit of Oxford there as well… not great

  3. Who Cares says

    Cambridge University employs hateful, bigoted, anti white professors. Look up Priyamvada Gopal.

  4. Emmet O'Leary says

    At 1:43, that would appear to be Trinity's Great Court, not King's.

  5. PleyTheGreat says

    PleyTheGreat was here

  6. Prithom Debnath says

    My Dream

  7. Eyeofthetiger says

    So Trinity college alone actually produce more than 30 Nobel prize winners, that's more than most countries combined!

  8. Eyeofthetiger says

    Did Hitler come to an arrangement with Churchill not to bomb Oxford and Cambridge? Just imagine the consequences!

  9. Mandy Ash says

  12. Diego Quispe Yufra says

    like si vienes del cultural

  13. James Naughton says

    Nice summary, but I feel compelled to point out that locations in Oxford crept into the footage: 01:22 is Lincoln College and 01:31 is Christ Church.

  14. Anaam Fahad says

    I wish to visit into Cambridge. The beauty is excellent and amazing. The English is very good and Its Dictionary.

  15. David C says

  21. Lillian Smith Whyte says

    Awesome ? thanks for sharing ❤️☕☕❤️

  22. Scoot says

    The weird thing about trinity is that Henry is holding a chair leg!

  23. emma carter says

    Hire a boat!!! It's a punt not a boat, I'm from Cambridge have lived here all my life, if you want to "hire a boat" book the river boat Georgina. What was shown was a chauffeured punt and it's much more fun (and cheaper) to do the punting yourself.

  24. Steve MetalHammer says

    I went to Cambridge. It was about 5 `o` clock in the morning of September the 1st 1985 and I was returning home by train from a trip to Rome. Actually I guessed the date, only knowing it was a Sunday probably in September 1985….

  33. Andy Lee says


  34. David ! says

    Cambridge > Oxford

  35. TheRenaissanceman65 says

    This is far too generalised. Churchill and Robinson colleges don't look like this as they are much newer. They certainly can't have centuries of heritage. And please learn how to pronounce "Principia". It's a hard c.

  36. AmandaMenghe says

    Britain is an amazing country.

  37. Trust Joe says

    Rick can punt me anyday

    0:08 Cambridge’s oldest college is Peterhouse which was founded in 1205.

  44. Digidojo says

    I was there in Sept. 2018 and it was quite nice. The King's College Cathedral is definitely worth a visit along with the Eagle Pub. The Corpus Clock is located right outside the gate to the cathedral and courtyard.
