Explore the historic county of Cambridgeshire from one of our retirement homes
Cambridgeshire is situated in the East of England, and the city of Cambridge is the county town. Cambridgeshire contains most of the region known as ‘Silicon Fen’, by analogy with Silicon Valley in California. Home to a large cluster of high-tech businesses.
Made up of market towns and villages, Cambridgeshire is an exciting and interesting place to live, and our retirement homes in Cambridgeshire serve as the perfect base for you to explore this beautiful county during your retirement.
The Cambridgeshire lifestyle
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
Flowing through the heart of Cambridge, the River Cam is one the city’s most captivating natural landmarks. A quintessential local activity is punting along the River Cam – a chauffeured cruise in a flat-bottomed boat or ‘punt’, you’ll float downstream with plenty of time to snap photos and admire the riverside landmarks.
The Fitzwilliam Museum is the lead partner of the spectacular collections of the University of Cambridge Museums. The Fitzwilliam houses a world-renowned collection of beautiful works of art, masterpiece paintings and historical artefacts. The ever changing exhibitions and displays provide an educational day out, all for free.
Ely Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in the city of Ely, Cambridgeshire. England’s 3rd longest Cathedral. Architecturally it is outstanding both for its scale and stylistic details, having been built in a monumental Romanesque style. Enjoy guided tours and visit the National Stained Glass Museum, housed within the Cathedral.
Cambridgeshire offers a variety of shopping facilities, including plenty of weekly markets throughout the towns. The Grand Arcade in Cambridge is the region’s leading shopping destination, featuring a mix of premium and high street retailers, cafes, restaurants and bistros.
