Rupert Brooke's Old Vicarage and the nearby Orchard Tea Room still stand; the river runs through; the village green has the requisite picturesque pub -- this is just a lovely, tranquil place.

Only an hour walk from Cambridge city centre. With beautiful scenes all along the way. It can be quite crowded in summer though. If you woulike the experience the tranquility of village life, colder months is perhaps a better choice.

The village is lovely and the Orchard tea rooms make the visit to Grantchester even more special. The Rupert Brooke museum is very interesting, small, free and worth a visit.

We walked to Granchester from Trumpington . Quiet lovely place. Old Vicarage where a famous author lives and the cutest church is well worth a visit

Visited Granchester Village in June 2013 and its a very quaint interesting village. The church is well worth a visit. The Orchard where Virginia Wolfe enjoyed is there, nice for a morning coffee or lunch. I believe that author Jeffrey Archer lives/lived in the village close to the Orchard.
