Cambridge Cultural tours
Literary and art historical tours of Cambridge
Nunkie offers literary and art historical guided tours of Cambridge and beyond. The below tours have been developed and art led by art historian and performance storyteller, Robert Lloyd Parry.
Ghost Writers on the Cam
Few towns have bred so many first rate writers of supernatural tales as Cambridge. Yet many of these master storytellers are forgotten today. Ghost Writers on the Cam seeks to revive some reputations. It is a walking tour of Cambridge that revisits some of the stories, haunts and lives of these imaginative souls. Breathes new life into old tales. Puts some flesh back onto mouldering literary bones.
Hear the juvenilia of Aleister Crowley. Meet Gerald Heard, the advocate of ‘Super-Shock.’ And find out who ‘occasionally sins by crossing the line of legitimate horridness…’
VII Strange Stories at the Fitz
This unique tour of the Fitzwilliam Museum offers an illuminating insight into some frequently overlooked images from the permanent collection, and the fantastic stories that they tell. Come and hear tales of impossible transformations and unlikely journeys; of cross-dressing heroes and flying philosophers. Perfect for residents of the city of tourists alike.
