A lovely village on the River
Cam with a literary history to match, Grantchester
was immortalised by the poet Rupert Brooke who
lived in the old vicarage well before it was
bought by another famous writer, Jeffrey Archer.
Just beyond the village is Byron’s Pool, a romantic spot visited over time by some of Britain’s greatest poets and writers including Byron, Spenser, Milton, Dryden and even Chaucer. In the nearby Church of Trumpington is the second oldest brass in Britain.
