Tour de France celebrations

by Rachel Smith

On Monday 7 July, the Tour de France peleton passed the doors of Pembroke College.

Spectators lined the streets to watch the famous race pass through Cambridge on its way to London. College staff, Fellows, and alumni enjoyed spectacular views from the road-facing bedrooms and offices.


Photographs of the riders passing Pembroke were featured on the BBC website and in Cambridge News. There are also some fantastic photos and video footage captured by members of the College.

We’re sure that our French foundress, Marie de St Pol, would have been delighted with the day’s festivities.
