St Neots Heritage
St Neots spans an ancient crossing on the Great River Ouse. Throughout its history the character of the town has been shaped by the river and also by its ancient market. Despite the rapid expansion of recent times, this is still true even today and the modern town has managed to retain its heritage.
St Neots Present
St Neots is now the largest and fastest growing town in Cambridgeshire and has plenty to offer the visitor.
In the town centre you will find a thriving market and a vibrant array of restaurants, cafes, pubs, bars, inns and shops (with an eclectic variety of independent local merchants as well as national retailers).
St Neots Future
Being located next to the M11 corridor, and within commuter range of both Cambridge and London, St Neots lies within a government-designated 'national growth area'. As such the town continues to thrive, with major expansion ongoing at its outskirts.
There are also ambitious plans for the development of further amentities within the town being drawn up by the town council as part of the St Neots Neighborhood Plan.
St Neots Green Corridor
St Neots is fortunate in having large areas of open space in and around the town, including various parks, meadows, commons, wetlands and nature reserves.
Linking these, and forming a green corridor that bisects the modern town, is the River Great Ouse. Some of the most memorable images of St Neots are afforded by the sweeping views of this river valley from the town’s bridge and riverbanks.
