Really enjoyed the walk along the river, but could have been enhanced with better signage. An easy walk & the village is worth visiting with its links to Rupert Brook. Beautiful Church highlighting the TV series Granchester. Enjoyed a drink on the terrace at The Rupert Brook. The other pubs looked lovely too.

Once again we traveled the path along the river by bike to Grantchester. The experience of tea and scones in the orchard is not to be missed.

This is a quintessential English village with old beamed houses, thatched roofs and plenty of history. There are plenty of places to eat and drink and especially recommended is a walk down to the river. You can walk along the river to the centre of Cambridge. A very pleasant spot in which to spend an interesting day.

We drove here to visit where one of our favourite TV programmes is filmed. We visited the church and the graveyard and had a walk around the village finishing off siting outside in the garden of the coffee shop.

Pretty little village, enjoyed coffee at the cafe & learned a little about Rupert Brooke. We had a pleasant walk along the river. There were a couple of nice looking pubs but we didn't visit them.

Passed through the village on bikes on the way into Cambridge. Picturesque and twee. Pleasant enough on a dry day. Two pubs to stop at.

Lovely village with quaint thatched cottages and meadow aspect - we walk there from Cambridge regularly - well really for the pubs - a Blue Ball has great food from local produce / the Green Man - character filled low ceilinged pub - in winter has The best roaring fire
