Tourism

The village attracts a number tourists and a Heritage Trail is planned to help visitors make the most of their visit.  With attractions such as the award winning Linton Zoo and Chilford Vineyard and exhibition centre nearby, Linton always seems busy and prosperous.   Among the attractions are the Elizabethan Guild House now privately owned, the Clapper Stile (one of the few surviving in Britain), the Workhouse, and a plethora of other lovely old houses.  Also worth a visit is the local Museum in Linton College. There are also two fords across the Granta and always plenty of ducks and geese for children to feed.

If exercise is needed then two footpaths lead up to Rivey Hill, and its impressive brick Water Tower where panoramic views are available as befits one of the highest points in East Anglia. (Click on the link, below, for more details on the Roman Road Walk.)

Nearby are the Roman burial mounds known as the Bartlow Hills.
