Copley Centre - Local activities and facilities

Local activities and facilities

This is Cromwell country on the edge of the Fens and there is much of interest to see in the area. The historic riverside market town of St. Ives is only three minutes walk from the site with good shopping and a small museum of local history.

St Ivo Leisure Centre with swimming pool and sports facilities is two minutes walk away. The Ouse Valley Way passes the site entrance and a six mile round trip hike route is available.

Cambridge (13 miles) has the colleges, the famous Fitzwilliam museum and Scott Polar Research Institute.

The Imperial War Museum at Duxford (23 miles) is well worth a visit with special rates and resources provided for Scouts working on Air Historian and other airmanship badges.

All food supplies can be obtained from local shops in St. Ives. There are also a laundrette, food restaurants and take-aways and hardware store in the town.
