Mini guide to Ramsey


Ramsey is a small town in Cambridgeshire, less than 20 miles northwest of the city of Cambridge. It boasts a long history, with the town originally centred on an ancient abbey dating back to 974 AD. Its delightful rural atmosphere, strong agricultural heritage and friendly locals make Ramsey a popular tourist destination.

Ramsey Abbey was one of the most important monastic houses in the 12th and 13th centuries, although little of it remains today except for the elaborately carved Abbey Gatehouse, built in the 15th century. The quiet green lawns of the Abbey Green are now home to the Almshouses and the parish church of St Thomas à Becket, dating back to the late 12th century. The 16th century mansion of Sir Richard Cromwell is now the Abbey School.

The Great Whyte is the town's main thoroughfare and it is here, as well as along the High street, that most of the town's shops and pubs are found. A shopping centre is situated at the southern end of the Great Whyte.

Ramsey Rural Museum is housed in 17th century buildings located on the edge of town and it contains interesting artefacts documenting the area's social history and agricultural heritage. It is open on Thursday and Sunday afternoons from April to September. The surrounding countryside is full of picturesque landscapes and parklands and is punctuated with historic market villages and ancient churches.

The A1 forms the main access route to Huntingdon, from where the A141 leads northeast through Norwich. To reach Ramsey, take the B1040 that veers off the A141 before Fenton, which then leads through Warboys to Ramsey. Huntingdon and St Neots both offer frequent rail connections to London, with a journey time of less than 1 hour, while regular coach services are also available.
