Latest reviews | Events in Huntingdon | 10 Places to Stay

Step back through time and discover our famous connections with Oliver Cromwell, the diarist Samuel Pepys, William Cowper, the poet, and Queen Katherine of Aragon. Find out about our history at the museums in the fascinating market towns of Huntingdon, Ramsey, St Ives and St Neots. Or visit one of the delightful heritage houses and gardens in the area. Hinchingbrooke House, in Huntingdon, is a Tudor country house built on the site of a former Benedictine nunnery. Elton Hall’s gardens are rose fragranced in summer providing a perfect backdrop to the magnificent house. Make an appointment to visit The Manor at Hemingford Grey, the second oldest continually inhabited house in England, built in 1130, and on which the Green Knowe children’s books were based.
Take a relaxing break in the attractive Huntingdonshire countryside, spend a day fishing, bird watching, horse riding or simply walking through the peaceful country parks. Alternatively, cycle on the purpose-built track around Grafham Water, or down quiet country lanes, pausing for refreshment at a country pub or tea room. Water lovers can cruise the meandering waterways of the beautiful River Great Ouse or enjoy sailing, wind surfing or water skiing. For something a little different try rally karting, gliding, ten-pin bowling, an afternoon at the races at Huntingdon Steeplechases or even hot-air ballooning!
Children of all ages can discover Huntingdonshire’s wilder side at The Raptor Foundation, home to over 300 birds of prey. See exotic animals at Hamerton Zoo Park or visit Wood Green Animal Shelter, which houses all types of animals from hamsters to llamas. Alternatively, take a ride on ‘Thomas’, the children’s favourite engine at the Nene Valley Railway. Population 20,000
