Events in St. Ives

Welcome to St. Ives, Cambridgeshire

Formerly known as Slepe, in the old county of Huntingdonshire, this ancient riverside market town St Ives is now named after the Persian Bishop, St. Ivo. St. Ives, now within the county of Cambridgeshire, stands on the River Great Ouse and is world famous for the Chapel on the Bridge

For nearly 1,000 years the wide centre of St. Ives, now known as Market Hill (pictured above), has hosted some of the largest public markets in England. Many years ago these markets included livestock and for a time was one of the biggest of its kind. Today the Street Markets still fill the St Ives town centre on Mondays and Fridays. On every Bank Holiday Monday however the market swells to fill almost the entire town with traders coming from all over the country to sell their wares to the thousands of people who attend under the watchful eye of Oliver Cromwell, one time resident of the town, whose statue stands in the centre of the Market Place.

St Ives is one of the five principal towns in the District of Huntingdonshire, the others being Huntingdon, St Neots (the largest town in the County of Cambridgeshire), the Roman town of Godmanchester, and Ramsey site of the former Abbey. We are also constructing our latest Huntingdonshire Parish website for Bluntisham.
