Soham is perfectly located in the rural heart of the Cambridgeshire fens, it’s just a short drive away from historic Bury St. Edmunds and the world-famous University City of Cambridge. A welcoming and long-established community; once occupied by the Romans, people have been settling in and around the town since the Bronze Age. Lying almost halfway between the Cathedral City of Ely and the Horse Racing Centre of Newmarket, the town offers residents the advantages of a healthy, outdoor lifestyle combined with the attractions and activities to be found in the major conurbations nearby.
The market town itself has everything to satisfy your day-to-day needs, with a variety of traditional pubs, restaurants and cafes, well-known high street supermarkets and a sports centre.
Educational needs for the young members of the family are very well-catered for, there’s a choice of three primary schools - St. Andrew’s C of E, The Shade and The Weatheralls. In addition, there’s the award-winning Soham Village College, a secondary school with academy status, rated GOOD at its last Ofsted inspection.
The historic city of Ely is a fifteen-minute drive away from Felix Park, offering a wealth of cultural and leisure attractions. The magnificent Ely Cathedral, at over 900 years old, is counted amongst the wonders of the medieval world, and visitors can enjoy a rich architectural and historical experience.
Or for nature-lovers looking for the wide-open spaces, the Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, a biological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and one of Europe’s most important wetlands, is home to over 9000 species. There’s plenty to see and do in Ely, visit the fascinating, refurbished family home of Oliver Cromwell, take a relaxing riverside walk or picnic in the beautifully-maintained Jubilee Gardens, or shop for fresh, local produce at the traditional Ely Markets in the city centre, held every Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday, with a specialist Farmers Market held every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month.
Newmarket Racecourse, the birthplace and global centre of thoroughbred horse racing, is less than 10 miles from Felix Park, and not only offers a great day out for equine enthusiasts, but is also a popular music venue; evening concerts include headline acts like Tom Jones and Olly Murs.
A little further afield you’ll find Bury St Edmunds, surrounded by the delightful Suffolk countryside with 1,000 years of history to explore, and offering award-winning food and drink, fantastic shopping, the arts, annual festivals, and stunning parks. Bury St Edmunds is known as a foodie town, and boasts the award-winning Pea Porridge restaurant, the only Michelin starred restaurant in Suffolk! Or visit the splendid St Edmundsbury Cathedral and stand among the ruins of the Abbey of St Edmund in the beautiful Abbey Gardens, once the most famous pilgrimage location in England.
Lying on the banks of the picturesque River Cam, the famous city of Cambridge is also less than 20 miles away, home to one of the world’s most famous Universities, which was founded in 1209. As such, this prosperous city has an enormous variety of cultural and leisure attractions to satisfy anyone. Whether you’re looking for first class theatre, contemporary art, literature and film, sport, festivals and events, or simply a great day spent shopping (Cambridge was recently voted the number one spot for shopping in the UK for the second year running) – this is the place for you.
Alternatively, for an altogether more tranquil experience, the magnificent Thetford Forest Park is less than half an hour’s drive away – a wonderful place for families to enjoy leafy walks, summer picnics, bike trails, or to simply immerse themselves in the local flora and fauna.
Soham sits on the A142, which to the south connects directly to the A11 and then onto the M11 straight into London. To the north, the A412 links to the A141 which takes you directly to the A1(M), permitting easy access to the UK’s northern cities.
