Days out were made to uncover the hidden beauty of our towns and countryside. In Ramsey you can enjoy both in one, with added heritage and history – not to mention a delicious Sunday lunch. Take in the many highlights of Ramsey’s historical buildings in the morning, and spend an afternoon discovering the hidden waterways under the town.
Stroll around the Heritage Hub Trail
The Heritage Hub Trail is a wonderful walk of discovery, weaving its way around Ramsey’s many sights. Treasures like Thomas a Becket church, which overlooks not one but two greens, and a gatehouse dating from the days of the great Benedictine abbey are infused with history.
Stop off at one of the many cafes on the High Street and Great Whyte. All family run businesses, you are sure of a warm welcome and home cooked food – not a Costas or a Starbucks in sight!
A wander along the waterways
What better way to work off lunch than a walk to uncover the history of Ramsey’s waterways. Great Whyte, one of the widest streets in the region, was once a channel to the River Nene. In the 19th century the brook was culverted to flow underneath parts of the town. Starting from Ramsey docks, you’ll trace the meandering course of this ancient waterway.
