  • Punting

    Cambridge Things to Do

    As I made my way along Magdalene Street, I came across a River with lot's of empty Punt's, and lots of Student's trying to take me Punting for a fee. Sorry.... I wasn't interested, and was on my way, only to find another lot, further on. It looks ok, and the few people I saw being punted looked to be enjoying themselve's. I don't know how much the...

  • The Eagle

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    I would recommend the Eagle rather as a place of interest than a pub. Of course, a drink in the RAF bar and a toast to Crick and Watson, the scientists who met here to discuss their progresses in their DNA research. A commemorative plaque to Crick and Watson, who discovered the secret of the human DNA in 1953, is located in one of the bars. The RAF...

    Peterborough Restaurants

    City centre brewpub and restaurant, a showcase for the beers of Oakham Ales, and "the largest brewpub in Europe" so they say and I'll not argue.Anyway there is a Thai restaurant on site too with authentic food and it was very popular with a large Saturday lunchtime crowd, a vegetarian sampler plate for us.Obviously the beer is the major attraction...

    A first visit for years and a first where we didn't lose any money on the racing! several small wins covered the cost, lucky I guess.Anyway, there is a smart race view restaurant, reservations usually needed, see website or plenty of room to mingle with bars and fast food outlets and many opportunities to place bets.An exciting and enjoyable night...

    Ely Transportation

    If you are travelling to Ely from London, there are a couple of ways you can do it. There are trains to Cambridge from either Liverpool Street or Kings Cross, and trains to Ely from Kings Cross. The trains from Liverpool Street are stopping services, as is the Ely train from Kings Cross.If you time it right, I find the quickest way is to get the...

  • Go to Jail!

    Ely Things to Do

    Sounds like an odd thing to say - go to jail, but it can be a rewarding experience. The jail (or gaol) in question is the old Bishop's Gaol in Market Street, now converted into a very interesting local history museum.The ground floor traces the history of the area from the earliest times, and also has a fascinating video of old Fenland practices...

    Wisbech Shopping

    You just don't find many shops like Evison's these days. It's a family-owned shop selling a vast array of outdoor gear and clothing - not so much the trendy high-tech stuff but the old-fashioned solid, dependable gear worn by farmers and others who spend their working lives out in the fields in the lashing rain and gusting winds.They have about 15...

    The Phoenix is a Chinese returant that shouldn't be here, it makes no sense in such a small town. It's huge. The food is not cheap but bloody marvelous. Better than anything I have ever had in China Town in London. They also do a good pint of Guiness!The Ali Shan is the best Indian in town with what I would call very clean food.

    The Land Warfare building at Duxford contains a very impressive array of hardware. The tanks and artillery range from WWI, WWII and up to the Gulf war.

You'll also come...

It shows a reconstruction of the 1940's Operation Room where RAF Duxford’s fighter aircraft were directed into combat during the Battle of Britain.The fixtures and fittings of this historic room are not original, but they are an accurate reconstruction of the Operations Room. When you walk into the room...

  • The delights of Huntingdon

    Huntingdon Things to Do

    I have to say that Huntingdon itself has little to recommend it, a rather boring little town full of boring shops and boring people.On the other hand it does house, in the old Grammar school a museum dedicated to Huntingdon's most famous son in English History - the Lord protector himself, Oliver Cromwell.He was born and bred here, attending the...

    This is a fairly new place in the Market Square of St Neots. I like the decor, it was tastefully lit and the owner was pleased to see us.

  • It's all the Same to Mother Nature!

    Wicken Warnings and Dangers

    Nature doesn't differentiate. For us a kingfisher is much more beautiful than a hornet, and I much prefer seeing a coulourful dragonfly coming towards me than an equally colourful spider.But to nature they're all the same.So when you go to a nature reserve, be prepared for the "creepy crawlies" that we don't like too much.There were hornets flying...

    Wicken What to Pack

    If it has been raining before your visit, pack some boots if you intend to go on a longerwalk. For the boardwalk no special footwear is necessary, though I wouldn't like to walk there in open sandals. As there is hardly any shade, bring some suntan lotion in case it's hot. But most important: Don't forget your binoculars! Watching the...
