Day 2

Make the most of the autumnal sunshine with a winter walk! Cambridge offers some beautiful walks, below are a few of our favourites.

1. Stourbridge Common to Fen Ditton

1.5 hours. 5 miles. Alternatively, you can walk all the way to Waterbeach – 8 miles, 2.5 hours. A relatively flat walk, following the river, past cows and river wildlife.

Directions

  • Midsummer Common river path
  • Continue to Stourbridge Common
  • Take sign to Fen Ditton or Waterbeach

2. Grantchester

This is a 3 mile walk following the river in the south of the city, and is one of the best walks around Cambridge. It is possible wheel a buggy along the cycle path route. A round trip on a straighter road back makes 5 miles in total.

Directions

  • Start at Lammas Land
  • Eltisely Ave to the Meadows
  • River path to Grantchester

3. Anglesey Abbey

1.5 hours, 4 miles. Around the beautiful Anglesey Abbey. You can visit the gardens too, which are lovely in the winter. Be careful as part of the route is very close to open water, and can be muddy. Dogs need to be on a lead near the farmland.

Directions

  • B1102 Burwell Rd to Anglesey Abbey
  • Left towards Lode Mill
  • Along Quy Water
  • Continue to Anglesey Abbey or over footbridge to Old Oak in woodland
