To many people Cambridgeshire is about one place and one place alone - the city of Cambridge and the world's best university. And true to form the city of Cambridge is extremely impressive, from the ancient university buildings and colleges to some of the best museums in the world to punting on the river.
But to ignore the rest of this beautiful county would be a mistake. From the beautiful cathedral cities of Peterborough and Ely to the impressive Imperial War Museum and from the miles upon miles of gorgeous cycling routes to the fens and farmlands, Cambridgeshire is a landscape of flat open vistas and endless horizons.
Bordering Suffolk to the east, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire to the west, Hertfordshire and Essex to the south and Lincolnshire to the north Cambridgeshire has been inhabited since the Neolithic period and was recorded in the Domesday Book as 'Grantbridgeshire.'
The landscape is one of endless flat farmland and reclaimed fens as well as endless waterways teeming with wildlife; gently chugging along the waterways in a narrow boat through tiny villages of thatched cottages is one of the quintessential English experiences.
Indeed Cambridgeshire is a county full of quintessentially English experiences. Whether it is a visit to the university city of Cambridge with its ancient colleges and old streets and old bridges spanning the Cam, or a trip to Huntingdon, the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell, or perhaps a tour of one of the two magnificent cathedrals, the Norman cathedral in Ely or the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter, Saint Paul and Saint Andrew in Peterborough.
From Longthorpe Tower, to Southey Wood, from Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery to Flag Fen and from the Imperial War museum to Duxford Airfield, Elton Hall to Nene Park to Britain's oldest nature reserve Wicken Fen, Cambridgeshire seems to have a never ending supply of attractions. Even without those attractions a day spent supping tea or pints in any one of the traditional villages around the county is a day well spent.

Death of the High Street?
The BBC reports that despite councils' attempts to kurb them, the UK's high streets have seen a huge growth in fast food outlets. Could this mark the death knell for the Great British high street, and what can we do about it to halt its decline?
Discrimination by Postcode
You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
The Redesign is Underway
Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
The Impossible Challenge of Affordability
