Living in Whittlesey

Everything you need

In true market-town tradition, the Market Square is the heart of the town and holds a popular weekly market. Plus, you have the big-town amenities of Peterborough close by. A family-friendly place to live, it has a good range of primary and secondary schools, including the rated ‘good’ Sir Harry Smith Community College has academy status for 11 to 18-year-olds.

Life on the Fens

Right on your doorstep, you have the Cambridgeshire Fens – a unique landscape of 200 square miles of flat horizon-view farmland that stretches all the way from Peterborough to The Wash. A peaceful area, it’s also perfect for cyclists and spotting the wildlife that thrives here. For more stunning coastal vistas, it doesn't take long to reach the Norfolk Coast. For entertainment and days out for all the family, the Museum, the Lattersey Nature Reserve and the Kings Dyke Nature Reserve are all within easy distance.

Well connected

Settled within Cambridgeshire’s rural Fenland, you have a network of country roads that link to the area’s main A routes – the A141, A15 and A16. The A1 is also to the west of Peterborough, connecting you to London and the North alike. 

A convenient link to mainline rail services, the  station has quick routes to both Ely and Peterborough – talking approximately half an hour. You also have the fast train from Peterborough to London King's Cross, which takes around an hour. And when you want to travel abroad, London Stansted and Luton Airport are both under a half an hour’s drive away.
