Sunday walk: Cambridge Circular

Note: this walk replaces the Laindon Circular walk originally posted for 18th February, part of which is reported to be exceptionally muddy at present

Cambridge Circular
Length: 15km (9.3 miles) Toughness: 1/10

This walk starts with a City Centre tour of the University Colleges before heading out to Grantchester on a path beside the River Cam, stopping for tea at the famous Orchard tearooms, and then returning to Cambridge, either via Trumpington or alongside the Cam. A visit to Cambridge University Botanic Gardens is possible at the end of the walk. The walk is mostly on footpaths and paved paths and should be relatively free of mud.

Lunch can be taken at any of the numerous cafes and pubs in the city centre, followed later by tea at the Orchard Tea Rooms.

10:01 Kings Lynn train from Kings Cross arriving Cambridge at 11:01. Buy a Super Off-Peak Day Return.

Direct return trains to Kings Cross are at xx:20 and xx:28 (journey time about 57 mins), with some slower trains going to Liverpool Street.
