One unforgettable destination. A small village with a lot of charm, preserving the spirit of medieval England. The scene of the TV series "Grantchester," based on James Runcie's novel "The Grantchester Mysteries." As a big fan of Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and many other crime authors, I couldn't help but be intrigued by the village. We arrived after a one-hour car journey from North London, parked at the paid parking lot right in front of the cozy tea shop, The Orchard. Be sure to go in and enjoy a traditional English tea in the wonderful garden.
Immediately after refreshing from the journey, we set out on foot; the village is small. First, we came across the local church, The Church of Saint Andrew and Saint Mary, and the house in front of the entrance.
Next were the old houses with their perfectly maintained gardens, the local brewery, and the fantastic atmosphere in the village.
The village isn't very large, and with the walk, tea in the tea shop, and ice cream, it took us about 3 hours. It's quite close to Cambridge and can easily be combined with a trip to Cambridge. Expect a story about Cambridge soon.
I hope you enjoyed the walk and that you've felt at least a bit of the spirit of this beautiful village. Thank you for your time, and if you wish to receive notifications about new destinations, you can subscribe to my blog.
