Places to visit in Cambridgeshire

Visit Cambridgeshire to travel through miles of lush, marshy fenland, cathedral towns full of medieval markets, and see the city of Cambridge – one of the world’s greatest centres of learning. Looking for things to do in Cambridgeshire? Follow the footsteps of one of the county’s most famous residents, Oliver Cromwell, to Ely to treat yourself to views of sprawling wetlands from the lantern towers. Or alternatively, do Cambridge by punt or bike to get a student’s-eye view of college greens, libraries, and chapels. There’s more to Cambridgeshire than academia and marsh, though. You can visit a World War Two aerial hanger at the Imperial War Museum Duxford, admire a Norman cathedral in Peterborough, and savour sweet sounds at Cambridge Folk Festival – one of the UK’s best folk music festivals.
