We spent a few enjoyable hours strolling around Grantchester, the essence of an English village. Well kept properties, many thatched and 3 good looking pubs, plus The Orchard cafe, once home to Rupert Brooke.
A visit to the Church of St Andrew and St Mary is worthwhile. A well looked after 14th century village church, containing information on Brooke and an interesting leaflet about the filming of the TV series.
We rounded off our visit with a pleasant walk beside the river - just perfect!

Thank Mike E

walked from the tourist information center in Cambridge to Grantchester says 2 miles but more like 2 and a half also if frightened of cattle don't go this way as they graze in the fields went into the church and around the churchyard lovely small church well preserved, then we found the orchard cafe great location with around 100 deck chairs outside and seating available inside had tea and scones very nice, continued walking around the village and then back to Cambridge a lovely way to spend a morning or afternoon.

The little village of Grantchester is very pretty and for those who follow the TV series "Grandchester", it is a must. The church is lovely. The best way to visit is by walking from Cambridge along the river and paths.

Lovely village made even more famous by the TV series of the same name. Many locations can be recognised from the series. Tip- enjoy a relaxing "nice cup of tea" at the Orchard- yes, it is in an orchard, falling apples and deckchairs Abound!
