The Cambridgeshire Live website names St Ives as one of the finest places to live in the local area, and we whole heartily agree. They also address the elephant in the room that the St Ives in Cornwall is not the only place with its name, and as they rightly point out, our local St Ives is more than a match for the other location!
One of the most impressive things about the local area is the variety of shopping on offer. As you would expect from a market town, there is always something of interest available for sale. If you are looking for a shopping experience that isn’t the same as is being delivered by every town or city, you need to find a place that has a number of independent shops to check out.
