Fenland District Council presides over an area which is rather aptly named the ‘Capital of the Fens’. The reason this is so fitting is that the towns and villages which make up this part of the Isle of Ely – including Chatteris, Wisbech and Whittlesey – really do encapsulate so much of what makes this area so great.

First up, as is usually the case in the stunning county of Cambridgeshire, is the incredible natural beauty found at the likes of Lattersey Local Nature Reserve and Pisces Country Park. These are a feast for the eyes, alongside the breath-taking feats of architecture and history, like the Georgian town Peckover House and Garden, and the Wisbech and Fenland Museum: one of the oldest of its kind in the UK.

It also shares that love of culture which Cambridgeshire is known for generally, exemplified by the centuries-old Angles Theatre. This also collides with great architecture and history to showcase all these exceptional elements in a single spot. It’s also a great place for sport, with equestrian, golfing and fishing passions all being pursued here.
Considering all this – not to mention its captivating aesthetics – it really is tough to turn a corner without spotting something spellbinding here. It should be no surprise then that the area is well known for being featured in the world of literature, with legendary authors like Robert Louis Stevenson finding inspiration in its beauty and character.
It’s important that we talk about character here, because we don’t want to give the impression that the area covered by Fenland District Council is somewhere made up entirely of tourist spots, as wonderful as they may be.

Between the big parks and the historical buildings, this area consists of cities, towns and villages: all of which have their own distinct charms, communities, businesses and identities. Just as important as anything are the cafes, pubs, restaurants, shops and people that really make these areas what they are. Every one of these places are unique, but each can provide a wonderful place to call home.

On top of that, it’s vital to remember that Fenland District Council does not exist in a vacuum. All the opportunities – both educational and in terms of employment and entertainment – that Cambridge is so well known for are easily within reach. This means that you can live wherever you want to, even if that area is very rural, without having to compromise on anything important to you.
