Perhaps you’ve done the city and want to get out and about for the afternoon...well this is just the thing. Heading out of the city through the fens towards the village of Grantchester to enjoy the river, The Orchard Tea Gardens, The Old Vicarage (previously the home of the poet Rupert Brooke and now the home of the author Jeffrey Archer). Then we sit down for either a cream tea or a pint in a very local British Pub, where we play the oldest recorded pub game called ‘ringing the bull’ (your drink could be free if you manage to beat the tour guide at this game). You never know you might be sitting next to a Nobel Prize winner as Grantchester has the highest concentration of them in the world.
If you’re daring enough you could bring your swimwear and cool off in the river Cam!
Catering for all ages and abilities the tours are suitable for single travellers, families, couples or even group bookings and there’s no need to be particularly fit as the tours take a leisurely ambling pace to really soak up the atmosphere. A choice of bikes is available, including immaculately refurbished antique British bikes with baskets, mountain bikes and even electric bikes.
