Why Cambridgeshire?

Cambridgeshire has so much to offer from the famous University City to the beautiful landscape of the fenlands.  Visitors to Cambridge can enjoy Guided Tours in the City, some excellent shopping, and also punting on the River Cam which is an increasingly popular activity, either by Chauffeur Punt or do-it-yourself!
To get away from it all a day exploring the Fenlands is recommended to appreciate the distinctive landscape, either cycling or walking, and not forgetting a visit to the beautiful City of Ely on the way with its magnificent Ely Cathedral. Further afield the City of Peterborough with its lovely Cathedral & Museum is well worth a visit, and also Nene Park with its woodlands and footpaths. 
Cambridge is a fabulous place to visit with its 31 colleges and their courtyards & bridges over the River Cam.  The most well known college being King's College Chapel, noted for its stunning architecture and beautiful fan-vaulted ceiling. 

There are so many lovely places to walk in Cambridge and visitors are able to enjoy the tours of the city and the colleges, and for those that enjoy shopping the new Grand Arcade shopping centre has a vast selection of shops to look around including John Lewis. 

River trips on the River Cam are a must to enjoy the gardens of 'The Backs' and the peaceful water meadows which stretch out towards Granchester.  If you get this far enjoy afternoon tea in the pretty Orchard Tea Rooms.  These tearooms started out in 1897 after a group of Cambridge students persuaded the owner of Orchard House to serve them tea, this then became a regular practice, and the rest is history!  Lodgers at Orchard House included the poet Rupert Brooke, who later moved into the Vicarage next door - now home to Jeffrey & Mary Archer.  You can also hire the famous punts or even hire a chauffeured punt so you can relax and enjoy the views.

In the City you can also visit some of the many museums including Fitzwilliam Museum with its large internationally-renowned collection of antiquities and fine arts.  You can discover fossils at the Sedgewick Museum of Earth Sciences.  A short walk from the hustle & bustle of this fine city you can loose yourself in the University Botanical Gardens, a 40 acre oasis of beautifully landscaped gardens and greenhouses, an all year round visitor attraction.

To the east of Cambridge enjoy St Neots on the river Great Ouse and just south of Cambridge is the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, one of the world's most spectacular aviation heritage sites with around 200 aircraft on display.  A great day out for all the family!
