If visiting Cambridge, nearby is the little village of Grantchester. The Church in this village was used in the TV English series of Grantchester. It is a nice place to stop for the Tea-rooms and Church. There is little else here, but a pleasant break on a nice sunny day. You can walk here from Cambridge or drive.

Left the Lord Byron Motel in the suburbs of Cambridge and walked to Cambridge via Grantchester. Loved the day in the fresh air after an extensive tour of Europe in a bus.

We took the long walk through scenic fields from Cambridge to Grantchester. There we saw the little church and cemetery seen in the wonderful tv show. Afterwards we drank coffee at one of the lovely pubs and headed back for the return hike. Nice afternoon.

Nice scenic village - as recommended by tripadvisor...but if you like country walking, you can spend hours I guess...but for us, we just visited a local pub, walked around the village and walked along the water. We had to be careful while treading on the grass though...hence we saw lots of locals with their wellies :)

Very beautiful well worth a visit. The Orchard Tea Room was lovely, food excellent. Very busy although lots of seating, both inside which looked like a 1940's tea room with proper deckchair seats outside in the orchard.

We love Grantchester, but it is starting to get busy here. Lovely walks on Grantchester Meadows, the placid River Cam, the thatched cottages, and The Orchard--all reasons to spend some time here.
