Grafham is a small village in south-western Huntingdonshire. It is a peaceful village close to the northern edge of Grafham Water, which takes its name from the village.

Grafham is close to the village of Ellington and not far from Huntingdon and St Neots. Many folk from those towns head out to Grafham to enjoy rest and relaxation by the banks of Grafham Water or watersports upon it.

The Water's main car park, Visitor Centre with bicycle hire and watersports facilities, lie just to the south of the village from which it is possible to follow numerous country walks including the 26 mile Three Shires bridleway.

The oldest part of Grafham lies around the beautiful rural, 12th Century Church of All Saints which itself overlooks the Water
