Relaxing March awaits: its gardens, dining, sports and more!

Being so close to the Fenland waterways, the town is a popular stopping of point for boaters with moorings in the town centre. But it’s not just for the maritime travellers; there is a great selection of B&Bs and hotels to choose from.

There is a nice variety of shops, from local artisan to independent high street brands, to enjoy after a day out exploring Cambridgeshire. Sit back and enjoy a bite to eat and watch the world go by with markets held twice weekly in the town centre.

March is the perfect alternative if you want to avoid the sometimes busy towns and cities when on holiday. The Ferns is an area of fantastic picturesque countryside, perfect if you enjoy the great outdoors.

Explore Cambridgeshire

Make March your starting point and explore the rest of what Cambridgeshire has to offer. Often described as a county for all seasons, be prepared to be excited by Cambridgeshire’s numerous beautiful museums and art galleries, each with their own unique architecture.

Get cultured in Cambridge with a visit to the theatre. Quite often there are a range of performances on, from the local student theatre to touring west end shows.

Cambridgeshire has many chapels and cathedrals for you to explore including Peterborough Cathedral, Anglesey Abbey, Ely Cathedral and, of course, Kings College Chapel. Kings College Chapel is a must when visiting Cambridge. Take a tour that encompasses the university as well. The chapel’s stained glass windows are beautiful, with each one telling a different story. A visit offers a peaceful relaxing atmosphere; a great way to spend an afternoon.

The Imperial War Museum in Duxford, Cambridgeshire is a great place to visit particularly if you enjoy Aviation history this museum has it all. A very interesting museum with a selection of Second World War planes, tanks and commercial planes to get a closer look at.

Shepreth Wildlife Park is the perfect location to take the family with all kinds of exotic animals including red Pandas and porcupines. Bunny Land within the park is always popular with young children, whilst the Twilight Zone and its featured bats is not for the faint hearted.

Venture further afield and stop by St. Ives, a wonderful riverside town just outside the Cambridgeshire County along the banks of the River Great Ouse. The town’s main focal point is its 15th-century bridge, one of only three surviving bridges in England from this particular period.
