Huntingdon is a quaint town located in the county of Cambridgeshire, east England. Huntingdon is a market town but is also more commonly known as Oliver Cromwell's birthplace, who was born in 1599 and educated at the Town Grammar School, which is now the Cromwell Museum.
Across the river from Huntingdon is the town of Godmanchester which you can get to via a beautiful 14th century bridge. The town is comprised mainly of 17th and 18th century buildings. The oldest building is the Manor House which has always been occupied and still exhibits period features. The Ramsey Rural Museum is housed in an 18th century farm building and various barns set in open countryside.
Huntingdon has a wealth of arts and cultural activity just waiting to be explored and enjoyed. The performing arts are well represented in a wide range of local groups - choirs, drama groups, bands, dance troupes - as well as by a resident professional orchestra.
There is plenty of wonderful countryside within the District, with nature reserves, country parks and lots of open land. Many beautiful sights are found along The Great River Ouse and Ouse Valley, from Paxton Pits Nature Reserve to Holt Island. The Hamerton Zoological Park, a Wildlife Conservation Sanctuary, has many colonies of animals, some endangered, and some even extinct in the wild. The Hinchingbrooke Country Park is set in 56 acres near Huntingdon. There is free access to woods, lakes and meadows from here, as well as water sports available.
Trains leave every half hour to London Kings Cross Station (duration 1 hour). The nearest airport to Huntingdon is London Stansted.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
