Huge and beautiful green area to relax. Just sitting and watching Cam river passing by. It would be ideal to wander through the village using a bike instead of walking.

The point about Grantchester is the walk there along the river from Cambridge - it's about a mile. If you're really organised, you can take a picnic and have an idyllic time by the river, jumping in occasionally if you feel hot. You can also...More

Grantchester is well worth visiting at the end of a river walk from Cambridge centre which will take about 45 minutes. There are well known pubs with gardens well as the Orchard Tea Rooms.
