Once again we traveled the path along the river by bike to Grantchester. The experience of tea and scones in the orchard is not to be missed.

Pretty little village, enjoyed coffee at the cafe & learned a little about Rupert Brooke. We had a pleasant walk along the river. There were a couple of nice looking pubs but we didn't visit them.

Grantchester always crops up when I search for river swimming. Is there a top spot? Should me and the kids start in Grantchester and head towards Cambridge or away? Is the current a bit strong? Advice appreciated.
