Best Buggy Walks

Buggy by college
Luckily Cambridge is very flat! Which is great to wheel a buggy around. The buses also all have access for buggies, as long as there aren’t too many on board already (which always seems to happen when it’s raining or need to get the kids home soon… ). So some walks can be good to do one way by buggy and back by bus. The city can get crowded in the summer so it’s nice to be able to walk in some greenery. Many paths are shared by cyclists in Cambridge. If there is not a clear pedestrian side, just keep to one side to allow cycles behind to overtake. Here are some of the longer walks that you can take with a buggy. Most include stop offs or pass playgrounds or outdoor cafes where your toddler can run around for a break.

❶ Genome Path – You can walk along the flat cycle path from Addenbrookes to Great Shelford along the Genome Path.

❷ The Backs – The short walk along from the Mill Pond by the Mathematical Bridge, along the backs of King’s College, over the bridge back into town are accessible.

❸ Wicken Fen – The boardwalk was built to be accessible, and is a nice way of being able to be outo and about in the Fen countryside which can otherwise get quite boggy and bumpy.

❹ The walk to Grantchester, if you stay on the top on the cycle way, this is OK by buggy too. It is a pleasant walk on a clear day. Although be careful at Grantchester as the pavements can be quite narrow.

❺ Jesus Green to Stourbridge Common along the river is a very pretty walk, with a couple of pubs that you can stop off on the way for refreshments such as the Fort St George on Midsummer Common. It has a large beer garden and serves food. There is a playground at the start and finish.

❻ The Lodes Way. This is an 8 mile walk from Wicken Fen to Anglesey Abbey. It is a cycle way and can get busy with other users, such as farm vehicles. The cycleway from Lode to Bottisham is beside the road so the other stretches are more suitable.

I love this clock. It is eccentric and a bit bonkers. It’s not about telling the time in the normal sense. In essence it is
