St Neots is the largest town in Cambridgeshire (as distinct from the cities of Cambridge and Peterborough) with a population of approximately 30,000 inhabitants.

This pleasant market town stands confidently on the river Great Ouse at what could be legitimately be described as the 'Crossroads of East Anglia' formed by the A1 north/south trunk road and the east/west A428 which services the busy east coast ports to Europe.

St Neots has had an eventful history dating from Bronze Age times but started to flourish in medieval times with the establishment of a Benedictine Monastery, which encouraged trades of all types particularly along the riverside, which was at that stage navigable to the sea. Later in Cromwellian times, the stone bridge was the site of a fierce battle between Royalist and Roundheads.

The town grew further in Victorian times with the coming of the railways and today the station provides a very effective commuter service to London with a journey of less than an hour.

In recent times the town has undergone considerable expansion with modern housing development surrounding the historic heart, which still has many fine period buildings particularly around the Market Square. Shopping needs are adequately met with several large supermarkets, many High Street retail names plus local specialist stores and services including banks and building societies.

St Neots has a broad range of professional facilities including a major sports centre and swimming pool, as well as a multi purpose social/art/theatre facility called the Priory Centre. The river offers a wide range of activities including boating from the two marina sites, angling and the highly regarded St Neots Rowing Club Regatta.
