Granchester Tour

2.5 Hours Easy 4 MLS

Perhaps you’ve done the city and want to get out and about for the afternoon … well this is just the thing. Meeting under the lamp in the middle of Parker’s Piece to the south of the City Centre at 1:30pm we walk over to the garage to pick up our bikes and get cracking.

We head out of the city through the fens towards the village of Grantchester to enjoy the river, The Orchard Tea Gardens, The Old Vicarage (previously the home of the poet Rupert Brooke and now the home of the author Jeffrey Archer). Then we sit down for either a cream tea or a pint in a very local British Pub, where we play the oldest recorded pub game called ‘ringing the bull’ (your drink could be free if you manage to beat the tour guide at this game). You never know you might be sitting next to a Nobel Prize winner as Grantchester has the highest concentration of them in the world.

If you’re daring enough you could bring your swimwear and cool off in the river Cam.

We head back into the city, finishing at about 4pm.
