Connection to first world war poets and philosophers at the Orchard. Short walk to the river. I have not tried it but you can punt from Cambridge along the river. Watch out for the wasps in summer.

Having seen the PBS series Grantchester, I knew I had to visit the village where it is filmed. It is just as charming in person. The village church is really pretty and the local homes and pubs are just a delight. I even found the...More

Pretty, scenic village right on the river. Perfect place for a quiet picnic on a summers day. Lots of pubs and a cute tea house right by the green

No theme parks, no bright lights, no gimmicks, just a lovely, traditional English village which had a wonderful atmosphere. Plenty of rather upmarket pubs for food and other refreshments. Relaxing and pretty following a rather hectic tour of Cambridge. Definately recommend a stroll through this...More

If visiting Cambridge, you must wander down the meadows to Granchester. Here you will find quaint tea rooms and pubs, friendly people, and dream-like surroundings. Granchester is the perfect escape from tourist heavy Cambridge. Spend the day here, sit outside at the Orchard, grab a...More

Grantchester always crops up when I search for river swimming. Is there a top spot? Should me and the kids start in Grantchester and head towards Cambridge or away? Is the current a bit strong? Advice appreciated.
