There can be little doubt that the places which make up Huntingdonshire District Council’s area of governance are moulded by history. It was declared a royal forest in 1154, meaning that it’s affiliation with natural beauty quite literally had a royal seal of approval.

We’re happy to say that, while things have moved on quite a bit from then – and indeed from the centuries it was largely farmland thanks to its fertile soil – the fact that much of its appeal comes from the natural world is something that has never changed. Check out the astonishingly beautiful Grafham Water and Hinchingbrooke Country Park, complete with lakes, fields, woods, fauna and flora, for proof of that.

Even its historical sites, like the picturesque 18th century Houghton Mill, and Elton Hall and Gardens, are bolstered by luscious greenery. Speaking of history, there’s also the likes of Cromwell Museum, Kimbolton House and The Manor at Hemmingford Grey providing plenty more ways to whet your historical appetite.

However, it’s important to note that while history and natural beauty have always been key elements of Huntingdonshire District Council, it has far more depth nowadays than it did during the reign of Henry II.

It’s made up of five major towns, including Huntingdon, Ramsay, Yaxley, St Neots and St Ives, alongside a huge selection of smaller towns and villages. We couldn’t possibly go through all the amazing sights and experiences these places have to offer. This is an area carved through centuries and it would be an insult to their depth and complexity to attempt to do so.

What we will say though is that individually, each is spectacular, providing an experience at once all of its own and in keeping with the wonderful assets that make Huntingdonshire so special in general. But it’s together where they really shine. Having all of this within a short travel distance makes Huntingdonshire  somewhere you could enjoy spending a lifetime exploring, and never run out of things to do.

It goes even further than that too, because Huntingdonshire has direct travel services to both London Kings Cross Station and is serviced by Great Northern, so you have the entire country opened up to you right on your doorstep. No matter where you want life to take you, in terms of education, employment or even just in terms of the experiences that are on offer, the options are close to limitless here.


Huntingdonshire is one of six districts that make up the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority. The CPCA also includes the following areas – Cambridge City, East Cambridgeshire, Fenland, Peterborough and South Cambridgeshire.
