Where is Grantchester filmed? Filming locations and the real village behind the series revealed – The Sun

ITV WILL see crime solving return to the Cambridgeshire village of Granchester, as the show's seventh series is set to be released in March 2022.

Step behind the scenes of the detective drama by learning more about the real village of Grantchester, along with the other filming locations.

Where is Grantchester filmed?

South Cambridgeshire

As its name suggests, the majority of the show's scenes are shot in Grantchester, a small village that lies on the River Cam in South Cambridgeshire.

The district has a population of around 540 and the settlement there dates all the way back to the 1086 Domesday Book.

Though the leafy village may look humble, it is said to have the world’s highest concentration of Nobel Prize winners – perhaps because the University of Cambridge is nearby.

During a Grantchester summer you're likely to see locals or visitors punting along the River Cam or stopping for a picnic in the meadows.

King's College Cambridge

The colleges of Cambridge are frequently used as backdrops for the detective drama, including the picturesque campus of King's College Cambridge.

King's College owns Grantchester Meadows, and in 2021 the college banned people from entering the River Cam from the meadows due to fears of injury claims from wild swimmers.
