After sailing through multiple beautiful wetlands on the river Ouse the city of Huntingdon awaits you and your crew on your narrowboat. After the picturesque trip from Ely through St. Ives, Huntingdon is the perfect place visit an English pub and enjoy a pint of draft beer and a solid plate of food.
There is a museum of one the most famous “Huntingdonians” Oliver Cromwell in the old grammar school where he used to study. Cromwell played an important part in the English civil wars where he was one of the leaders of the Parliamentarists rebellion against the king and the Royalists.The Parliamentarists eventually won the war making Oliver Cromwell the head of state until his death in 1658. Now you might think: “But wait. Isn’t Britain still a monarchy?” That is true. Only 2 years after the death of Oliver Cromwell King Charles the 2ndretook the throne and one of his first order was dig out Cromwell’s body from the Westminster Abbey and behead him.
