Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire offers a uniquely English experience; a rich history, stunning heritage and tranquil rural landscapes. Many of Cambridgeshire’s attractions are closely linked with some of the key events in English history, so a holiday in the region allows you to engage your mind as well as relax your body to make a truly memorable break.

Access to Trinity College in Cambridge may be limited but it is open to the general public from time to time. Founded by Henry VIII, and boasting the apple tree that shared the concept of gravity with Isaac Newton, the college is one of Cambridge’s real treasures. Even if you don’t gain access the exterior architecture is more than enough reason to pay a visit.

Equally stunning displays of historical buildings can be found at King''s College Chapel. Renowned for its incredible acoustics and Gothic architecture, it’s a veritable feast for the eyes and has a most interesting past; make sure you read up before visiting!

The Imperial War Museum in Duxford is one of the most popular attractions for those with a passion for more recent history, offering a unique account of the First and Second World Wars, where you can explore the large airfield and wander amongst some of the world’s most iconic aircraft.

The city of Ely is steeped in history and is principally known for its magnificent cathedral and also the place where Oliver Cromwell resided for ten years; his house can still be viewed today.

While history plays a large part in the regions attractions the landscape itself stands out for its wealth of natural charms. If you fancy a truly relaxing day out then a punt down the River Cam is one of the best ways to get a feel for the place.

Due to a naturally low-lying geography a holiday in Cambridgeshire is well suited to those who want to get out and about without taxing themselves too much. Of note is Holme Fen, believed to be the lowest land point in Great Britain and a protected National Nature Reserve, which makes the region a great draw for nature lovers.
