Alt hough it poured down & we got soaked it was a great day out. The walk from cambridge was long but worth it. The views on the way were amazing well worth a vist. Go to the church also.

Lovely village a few minutes drive (or by bus) from Cambridge. The Orchard tea room is a must, but better than what you may think. This is not a prissy tea room with a maid serving tea. This is a nice, open and frindly place...More

The Orchards coffee shop area is lovely and the Village is stunning. And then an Amazing walk by the River Cam to top it off.

The walk from the centre of Cambridge to Grantchester is very nice, especially the portion alongside the river Cam. Grantchester is a really beautiful village, with a famous small church - famous for those who have seen the Grantchester series that is.

Having parked in the village we strolled along the river enjoying the tranquillity and looped back via the Blue Ball Pub.

Grantchester is very popular and it is easy to understand why. Quintessential English village with lots to see and do. Try and get down to the river if you can, and the tea rooms and pubs are delightful
