The market town of Huntingdon lies in west Cambridgeshire, to the west of Cambridge and Ely, and north of Bedford. The birthplace of Oliver Cromwell, attractions include the Cromwell Museum and the old Falcon Inn, Cromwell’s main headquarters, as well as several other related buildings. There’s an interesting market square, an elegant town hall, a small park and a picturesque medieval church.
Houghton Mill is a great choice for family outings – a working watermill in the attractive setting of the Great Ouse, this impressive building still grinds flour with millstones, using energy harnessed from the river. Family events include milling demonstrations, baking days and open-air theatre.
Nearby Hinchingbrooke Country Park, with its expansive meadows, woodlands and lakes makes the perfect place for an afternoon stroll, together with the historic Tudor house, which has Cromwell connections. Grafham Water Park is also close by, offering activities such as fishing, sailing and windsurfing.
The Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch is located north of Huntingdon railway station, just a short drive away, and just off the A141 and the A14, which connects with the A1(M), making it very easy to get to by road.
