Fodor's Review

This little village 2 miles up the river is a delightful walk or bicycle ride from the center of Cambridge along a signposted riverside path through the Grantchester Meadows. It was put on the map by its famous son, the World War I poet Rupert Brooke, whose line "Stands the church clock at ten to three? And is there honey still for tea?" is from his poem "The Old Vicarage, Grantchester." You also can reach the village enjoyably, if challengingly, by punting upstream along the Cam.
