Cambridgeshire dates back to Neolithic times, and in the east of the county there have been many archaeological discoveries from the Bronze Age, Iron Age and Stone Age. There are many museums and galleries you can visit that showcase relics from its historic past. The Imperial War Museum, The Scott Polar Research Institute and Kettle’s Yard can all be found within easy reach for those who want to delve a little deeper.
Ely is a beautiful cathedral city saturated in history, inspiring architecture, shops and galleries, and makes a great day out for anyone staying at Cambridgeshire hotels. If you want to unwind, the River Great Ouse is a wonderful place to relax and watch the world go by.
Another idyllic place to visit is Stamford, a pretty market town enveloped by a thousand year history.
