With the historic university city of Cambridge at its heart, Cambridgeshire is an English county rich in history and academia. Home to one of the most famous universities in the world, along with a host of museums, galleries and pretty cobbled streets, Cambridge is one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations. The rest of the county has plenty to offer too, with rolling countryside, quaint villages and busy market towns. Visit the lovely city of Ely with its majestic cathedral or head to the pretty riverside town of St Ives (not to be confused with the St Ives in Cornwall). The land is filled with stately homes, winding waterways and scenes of natural beauty.
