We really enjoy the rural bike ride to the quaint village of Grantchester. Favorite haunts are The Green Man Pub and The Orchard. Once there, I like strolling around on foot, looking at the thatched houses and the beautiful old church and church yard.

This village is just south of Cambridge. You can get there by road, but better ways are by cycling along the river, or indeed punting on it. The village is very quiet and quaint.

Visited the tea rooms in Grantchester. Grounds well laid out and spacious. Plenty of deckchairs and tables so you can enjoy your cream teas. Walked across meadow and along by river. Plenty of varied walks to choose from.

If you want relaxing day Grantchester Meadows is the place. If you want a real treat download Pink Floyd’s Grantchester Meadows from Ummagumma CD/LP and playback via your headphones while walking the route sadly I have never seen a kingfisher. Then drop in at the Orchard tea rooms, access via the cricket field if walking or car park if driving.... More

A beautiful middle class village. I'd live there if I was rich! Nice pubs and the orchards. Byrons pool nearby and other villages such as Coton.

Stunning little village with three amazing pubs and beautiful scenery. We hired a bike to get here through the meadows from Cambridge (approx 2 miles from the centre). Well worth a visit.

Spent a really nice couple of hours strolling through the village, visiting the old church and down to the Cam.All very pleasant and the church was especially interesting bearing in mind the Rupert Brook poem. His name is on the 1st World War memorial in the churchyard.

Rent a bike to explore Grantchester! There's a road 'Grantchester Meadows' that leads to a bike path, follow the bike path and you'll get to the Orchard tea garden, famous for its clotted cream scones.
