March is a market town located amongst the fenlands of Cambridgeshire. The town itself is set along the banks of the old River Nene, which winds its way through the town centre past the park and the riverside gardens. The river is often a busy hub of activity with colourful boats cruising up the Fenland waterways.
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.
