  • 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. 
  • Park up, take a stroll through the village down to the river, head either way and return for tea in the tea rooms sat in a deckchair. Lovely. 
  • Lovely church but visit rather spoilt by incredibly noisy and busy road and the fake wisteria on the house by the church!
