St Ives is a wonderful riverside town, tourist centre and thriving community. Located just off the A14, 6 miles from Huntingdon and 12miles from Cambridge on the banks of the river Great Ouse. The Guided Bus way provides an, easy access route from Cambridge with busses running on a regular basis.
Its shopping centre has a good mix of independent traders and multinationals. The original character is retained with regular markets held every Monday and Friday with Bank Holiday markets being very popular. On the first and third Saturdays of each month an excellent Farmer’s Market takes place.
A focal point is the splendid 15th Century Bridge and chapel over the river and is one of only three such surviving bridges in England.
The Ouse Washes Landscape is only a heartbeat away. Explore the vast river network by hiring a boat from St Ives or come face to face with amazing wildlife at nearby RSPB Fen Drayton Lakes and RSPB Ouse Fen.
