Local attractions

With its pedestrianised shopping centre, Huntingdon offers visitors a choice of national, independent and boutique shops. The town is undergoing a major facelift, with ongoing redevelopment in several areas. The historic High Street, St Benedict’s Court and Chequers Court now offer a good mix of shops for all tastes. Gift shops, craft shops, bookshops, antiques shops, clothes and home-style shops all allow a happy time to be whiled away. Traditional markets are held every Saturday and Wednesday, in Market Square, with the popular farmers’ markets every other Friday and on the last Saturday of any five-week month. There is also a popular crafts & collectables market every Friday in the town’s Commemoration Hall.

Visiting markets include French and Italian markets and exquisite craft markets. All year round, there are periods of entertainment to keep the young-at-heart happy, with the popular Christmas lights each November and for the festive period.

There are plenty of places to enjoy a drink, a bite to eat or a more formal dining experience, as well as pavement cafés for those lazy summer days.

Houghton Mill, a National Trust property, is a water mill located on the Great Ouse. Flour is still milled here – and the building is a tourist centre, with a campsite nearby.
