If you don’t have too much time, or you’d just prefer to take a walk and have a picnic, it’s worth to visit Ditton Meadows or Grantchester Meadows. In both cases it is only 2.5-3.5km from the city centre and it’s easy to get there. There are options to shorten or lengthen the walks a bit as well.
Check out ‘Trips‘ section to see how to get there!
Grantchester Meadows are bigger but more crowded and popular at the same time. There is an opportunity to swim there (Grantchester Meadows: one of UK’s best places for ‘wild swimming’)
Ditton Meadows are wilder and there are not so many people there. You may also decide to visit Fen Ditton when you are there.
