Miles of lush, marshy fenland, medieval market and cathedral towns and bundles of academia. You'll know when you've landed in Cambridgeshire. Follow resident Oliver Cromwell's footprints to Ely to treat yourself to views of endless wetlands from the lantern towers or do Cambridge by punt or bike to get a student's-eye view of college greens and chapels. You can trace the Battle of Britain back to Duxford's listed air hangars or navigate the River Great Ouse through flood plains, weirs and washes. See swans nesting and falcons circling. Cyclists love this eastern county's easy gradients too.
