Centurion's Social Walk - Saturday 30th March 2019
Centurions, friends and family are warmly invited to join us for a leisurely 6 mile stroll through some of the sights of Cambridge to Granchester, beloved of literature’s 1900s Bloomsbury Group and former village resident Rupert Brooke.
For over 700 years students such as Newton, Darwin, Cromwell, Wordsworth and others (e.g Pink Floyd) have travelled from Cambridge to Granchester village so now we are adding the Centurions to the list.
While in Granchester we will take a break at the Orchard Tea Rooms. After lashings of tea and cake we will make our way back to the railway station via Byron’s Pool where Lord Byron is reputed to have swum. We then cross Trumpington Meadows and return to the station following the guided busway.
Meet outside Cambridge Railway Station 10:30am.
Parking available at the station (Station Road, Cambridge CB1 2JW) plus a multi-storey cycle park outside the station. Alternative parking near the station is in the Queen Anne Terrace car park, Gonville Place, Cambridge CB1 1ND. Park and Ride buses are available from various locations around the perimeter of Cambridge. Toilets available on the station platform or one of the cafes in Station Square. Hope to see you there.
