Several nice pubs and of course the tea room here is famous, in high season you may struggle to get a seat if you don't book. You can hire a punt and take the river down here if you are feeling brave and energetic, you'll need to hire them from down by the Granta pub as the other punt companies... More

Drove through whilst on a weekend in Cambridge. A beautiful village with the church from the tv show. Not too much else evident from the show and as it was cold we didn't walk or visit the pub

This is one of the prettiest villages I've ever seen. Give yourself enough time to do the walk through the meadows from Cambridge: it will take you about 45 minutes and is wonderful. The pubs are charming and "The Orchard " is a must-do.

The Orchard is great for a lovely scone and coffee - a bit pricey for what it is. All the pubs are lovely and serve good food.

This beautiful little village on the outskirts of Cambridge is delightful for a short diversion. It sits on the River Cam and there are many walking (and swimming!) opportunities and it is blessed with a good selection on very popular pubs serving very good food. There is also a a great tea house set in a lovely orchard (known as... More

The village is quite nice. the main reason to visit would be the Orchard Tea Rooms and the access to beautiful Granchester Meadows from the rear of the tearooms.

We spent a nice afternoon in this village where you can feel like the time was stopped. Really good tea room with proper english tea and cakes and perfect garden for summer time where you can chat with friends and be sure you will lose count of time there.

I'm not a very relaxed person, but I must admit this is one of the better places I have visited for chilling out. The Tea Garden where the Neo-pagans hung out is tranquil beyond belier.
