From the strange and mysterious to the breathtakingly beautiful, we've discovered some of the best places to while away your free time. Jan Reynolds toured the county from top to bottom, calling in at towns and villages to find out where you can take your visitors, your children, or just yourself for a treat!
Our 'Tourist in Town' Jan Reynolds, wanted to discover the county's hidden gems - places you might not have heard of before - rather than the well-known tourist haunts.
|One of the county's best kept secrets?|
And the good news is most of it won't cost a fortune - Jan searched out dozens of places with free entry, and there's often free parking nearby. If you don't have transport of your own, you'll be glad to know that most places are on a bus route.
So, whatever takes your fancy - wandering through Wisbech, sauntering around St Ives, or peeping into some quiet little corners of Peterborough - rediscover your county with 'Tourist in your own Town'!
