Grantchester Meadows

Walk Location: 

Grantchester Meadows stretches along the footpath from Newnham in Cambridge to the village of Grantchester. The river Cam winds through it and it's a popular walk for dog owners at all times of the day, as well as for those heading out for a pub lunch in the famous village of Grantchester.

Note that if your dog likes jumping in rivers, it will have an excellent opportunity to do so here. This may or may not be desirable!

You can park in Newnham at the end of the street called 'Grantchester Meadows', or in Grantchester and head towards Cambridge.

Pink Floyd wrote a song about Grantchester Meadows. It tends to be more peaceful most of the time!
