Cambridge & Grantchester (day trip)

Let's make a day trip to Cambridge, and also visit the lovely nearby English village called Grantchester.

Please meet me at 8:45am in King's Cross train station next to Leon, which is near the entrance to the station's ticket office. I will be wearing an orange scarf. My mobile phone number is [masked]

(Note: we are meeting in the train station, not the Tube station; make sure you follow signs to King's Cross train station and not to St Pancras International train station, which is nearby. Please do not be late - we will leave the meeting place at 9am to board the train)

Please pay me £40 in cash when you meet me. This covers the cost of all transport, guiding and punting, but you will need to bring extra for food and drink or souvenirs.


Top: Grantchester: The Orchard & The Old Mill
Bottom: Cambridge: King's College Chapel & Punting

We will be catching the 9:14am train, arriving in Cambridge at 10:03am.

We will take a bus to the town centre and I will give you the first part of a walking tour. We may see some postgraduates dressed in their gowns to attend a degree ceremony today.

We will enjoy a 1-hour punt on the River Cam (a punt is a flat wooden boat which you steer using a long pole) - this is a tradition in Cambridge, and there are lovely views along The Backs.

After some free time for lunch we will do the second part of the walking tour.

We will then take a  bus to the village of Grantchester. After exploring the village we will have tea in the gardens at The Orchard and walk a little along the river and meadows, before returning to Cambridge train station.

The plan is for us to arrive back at King's Cross at about 8:00pm (before 8:30pm at the latest).

    I have missed this so many times and I will again, this Saturday, because I'm going to a blooming wedding! This trip would have been more my type of using my day than going to a wedding! ;)
    Have a great time!
