Huntingdon is a picturesque market town in Cambridgeshire, England. The town was chartered in 1205 by King John. It is the traditional county town of Huntingdonshire, the seat of the Huntingdonshire District Council. It is known as the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell, who was born in 1599 and was the member of parliament for the town in the 17th century.
Stroll at leisure among the pedestrianised shopping centres and enjoy a mix of independent and national brands among shops, cafés and restaurants.
Highly recommended is the Historic Town Trail, taking you on a self-guided circular walk from the town hall, past the Thinking Soldier war memorial and the 16th-century Falcon Inn, reputedly a headquarters for Cromwell during the Civil War, and All Saints’ Church. As one of only two surviving medieval churches, All Saints’ Church has Norman stonework – and the font is reputed to have been used for the baptism of Cromwell. The route leads you past old gaols, the quaint Market Inn and onwards to the picturesque riverside park with its 19th-century mill, now smart apartments, and back through the town, with so much more history to soak up.
