Open Cambridge is an annual event organised by Cambridge University held every September. Many Cambridge Colleges and other interesting and historically significant buildings open to the public allowing a glimpse of some rare treasures.
This film was shot in about 3 hours and features Christ’s College and its Bodley Library, Corpus Christi College and its Parker Library, Queens’ College, Chapel and Old Library and St John’s College and Old Library (including a telescope that belonged to Fred Hoyle). The excellent Whipple Museum is also briefly covered (note the orrery as well as Charles Darwin’s old microscope). The next Open Cambridge event is planned for 13-15th September 2013. You can find out more about it on this link:
