Formerly known as Slepe, St Ives is a pleasant, ancient market town on the banks of the River Great Ouse. Famous for the Chapel on the Bridge, one of only 3 such surviving bridges in England and as being the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell, St Ives has been a market town for almost 1,000 years. During that time, it has hosted some of the largest public markets in England and even today, the town boasts a market on Mondays and Fridays. The original character of the town remains and the shopping centre has a good mix of independent traders and well-known High Street stores. This afternoon we drive to the city of Ely, lying in the heart of the Fens and dominated by one of England’s great Cathedrals and ancient monastic buildings (entrance not included). Oliver Cromwell lived here and his former home is open to the public. The city has many ancient buildings, a pleasant park which leads down to the river.
Price: £18.50 includes return travel by luxury coach, free time in St Ives on market day and a visit to Ely
