This long-distance footpath from Cambridge to King's Lynn totals almost 50 miles, about 80 kilometers. The path follows the River Cam to Ely, 17 miles/27 kilometers north of Cambridge. Here the river joins the Great Ouse, flowing out of Cambridgeshire through Norfolk and into the North Sea at the Wash. Along the footpath, Waterbeach, Ely, Littleport, Downham Market, Watlington and King's Lynn all have railway stations with trains back to Cambridge. Start the walk in Cambridge and follow the south bank of the Cam from Midsummer Common. Later you can cross to the north bank or remain on the south side - the latter route passes riverside pubs in Fen Ditton and Horningsea, but on the north bank there is nothing until the village of Waterbeach.
