If you head to the 300-acre ancient parkland, keep an eye out for the rare breed cattle and sheep.

Time for tradition.
Cambridgeshire walks aren’t complete without a leisurely stroll near the River Cam, one of the most iconic rivers in the UK that flows through Cambridge. When you want a break from walking, why not go punting? Sit back, relax and get taken on a journey along the river in style.
