Ramsey is a small market town in Cambridgeshire.


Ramsey is an historic fenland town with an abbey founded in 969. It's a quiet place where you can experience rural England but has enough life and facilities to enable you to stay there. It makes a good base to explore the surrounding area.

Ramsey is not a major tourist destination so would suit those wanting to get off the beaten track.

Buses run every hour or two from Huntingdon to the centre of Ramsey.

However, if you fancy staying over then Shire Lodge in nearby Bury provides good Bed and Breakfast for around £40. It's a 15-minute walk away along a pretty footpath. There is a hotel in the centre of town as well.
