Perhaps the stereotypical Cambridge experience, the idyllic Grantchester Meadows were immortalised in song by Pink Floyd (“a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees… laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea”).

The narrow path has long been open to cyclists. From the riverside Mill pub, it’s traffic-free almost all the way – there’s just the quiet residential streets in Newnham Croft to pass through. Grantchester has plenty of pubs and a café, or just bring a picnic for the meadows!
