Cambridgeshire is a large and diverse county at the heart of East Anglia. From the most high-tech and innovative, to the historic and traditional, this thriving county is a fun and exciting place for all the family to enjoy.

The numerous towns, villages and three cities in the county are steeped in history and hold countless accolades. There is an abundance of green spaces and beautiful gardens for children to explore and play games.

It may be useful to know that the cities of Cambridge and Peterborough do have their own Mumsnet Local sites.

The historic market town of St Neots was placed number 4 in the Daily Telegraph's Top 20 ‘Foodie' Hotspots 2013, receiving praise for its twice-monthly Farmers' Market. The Cock in Hemingford Grey was named Pub of the Year 2013 in the Good Pub Guide.

Ely Cathedral is known locally as the 'Ship of the Fens'. It's famous for its unique Octagon tower which, when lit, can be seen for many miles. It can also be seen on the big and small screens lots too as it's a popular location for TV and movie producers.

Visit one of Cambridgeshire's Nature Reserves which often organise events that will keep the little ones entertained and educated at the same time. They could be pond dipping at Paxton pits, camping out in the wild at Wicken Fen or discovering what's under the water whilst staying dry in the pond room at Welney Wetland centre.



Some other attractions in Cambridgeshire include Grafham Water Reservoir, The Duxford Imperial War Museum, Shepreth Wildlife Park, Oliver Cromwell's house, Skylark Maize Maze & Funyard, Buckden Towers & The Raptor Foundation.
