Most of Cambridgeshire is made up of rich, fertile fenland. This prime agricultural land was once regularly flooded and the Isle of Ely, rising above its marshy surroundings, was often marooned in water. Since 1974 the historical county has included the former county of Huntingdonshire.
The county town of Cambridgeshire is the striking, traditional city of Cambridge. It is home to the University of Cambridge, one of the oldest and most prestigious academic institutions in the world. Its medieval streets, college courts, gardens and bridges, and the river Cam, attract visitors from all over the world.
With its outstanding architecture, historic and academic significance, and luxuriant countryside, there is much to explore in Cambridgeshire. Use the links below for more information on the county. Alternatively, search for a district, town or parish within Cambridgeshire.
