Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire is famous for being the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell in 1599. Originally an Anglo-Saxon town, its proximity to the River Ouse led it to become a busy coaching centre and market town. The impressive George Hotel was actually used as a coaching inn built right by the medieval bridge that takes traffic in and out of nearby Godmanchester.
Huntingdon has a number of restaurants, cafes and public houses and was once represented in parliament by Conservative MP and Prime Minister John Major.
