Bike to Ely


Watch the race horses training in the early hours of the morning on the Heath. (or any point during the morning really but early is best)

Walk to a country pub

We would recommend the following pubs that have a nice walk nearby:-

The Queens Head in Newton (South Cambridge)

The Peasant in Chishill (towards Royston)

Day trip to the coast

The north norfolk coast is only 1.5hrs away by car.

Island Hall

Walk round the house and grounds. Quite unusual to have a country house set on an island. Various events during the year including Opera.


Day Trips Away

It’s more than possible to visit London, The Cotswolds, York, Bath, Stonehenge etc., in a day. There are companies that provide these trips from Cambridge and back such as Roots Travel http://www.roots-travel.co.uk/day_tours.htm
