Make sure to check out our fun facts about Cambridgeshire!
1. It sounds slightly bizarre, but a famous Cambridgeshire dish is celery baked in cream… probably best to give that one a miss off the wedding menu!
2. No doubt you’ve heard of Cambridge university. The famous university’s alumni include Stephen Hawking, Prince Charles, Carol Vorderman, Sacha Baron Cohen, and everyone’s favourite, Sir David Attenborough.
3. The county town of Cambridgeshire is Cambridge. Cambridge is a city, but as we all know, you need to have a Cathedral to be classed as a city. Luckily, Cambridge were able to ‘borrow’ the cathedral from neighbouring Ely – a town named after the eels which used to swim there.
4. Desperate for good weather on your wedding? Cambridge's rainfall averages around 570 mm (22.44 in) per year, which is around half the national average!
