The P Stands for Perambulating

IMG_7321One of the more unique activities that the PAs run are the personal tours of Cambridge. Intended to be an opportunity to introduce the PKP students to just a few of the 31 Cambridge Colleges, the tours are run by those who know them best: their students.

Pictured to the left is former King’s student Jack’s providing his tour of King’s College. The original PA-led College tour then goes around to Clare College, Senate House, Gonville and Caius, Trinity College, and finishes up at St John’s20160718_154851.jpg. The anecdotes shared on the Curiosity Tour of Cambridge include the importance of the cows on King’s lawns, and the Danish tree imported to obscure the view of the University Library, all the way to the tale of Trinity and St John’s race to finish their bell towers.

The success of the Curiosity tour led other PAs to want to show off their homes in much the same way.

To the right is PA Anthony demonstrating to the PKP students that you can walk on the grass at Jesus College (the actual name of which is ‘The College of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint John the Evangelist and the glorious Virgin Saint Radegund’) as you wander around the sculptures by famous artists such as Anthony Gormley, Eduardo Paolozzi, and Barry Flanagan.
