Welcome to St. Neots

Including Eynesbury, Eaton Ford and Eaton Socon

St Neots is the largest town in Cambridgeshire, and since 1113 when the Priory of St Neots came into being has been an important bridge-head over the River Great Ouse. It is this bridge, and the convergence of the main roads from Huntingdon, Kimbolton and Bedford, around, which the prosperity of the town of St Neots has developed.

St Neots today has thrown off the dismal overcoat of the 20th Century and in recent years transformed itself into a "town in a garden". St Neots is one of the five principal towns in the District of Huntingdonshire, the others being Huntingdon, St Ives and Ramsey site of the former Abbey and the Roman town of Godmanchester.

Realising that it has some of the best assets any town could wish for; the huge Riverside Park with the River Great Ouse running through it, the old industrial and commercial buildings of the 19th Century most of which have now been tastefully transformed into vibrant modern shops, offices or apartments to die for, an enormous Market Place that provides not only parking in the middle of town - now there's a rare novelty - but also still fulfils its role as a proper market place but best of all on a couple of occasions each year it can all be cleared for a fun fair or other special public event.
