45–47 Mill Way Cambridge CB3 9ND

The modern world (or at least tourism) has caught up at last, but Grantchester remains the postcard-pretty village eulogised by Rupert Brooke, the war poet who lived here while a King’s student until 1914. His story is told in a museum in a garden shed of the Orchard tea garden where he had cream teas with his undergraduate friends: EM Forster, Virginia Woolf, Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein and John Maynard Keynes. Everyone from royalty to tourists has followed, but the blissful setting has barely changed and neither have the cream teas. Granchester remains the best place to enjoy a little peace and quiet accompanied by scones smothered in jam!
