Littleport is a large village in the heart of the Cambridgeshire fens, nestling next to the Great River Ouse. It is known throughout East Anglia for the magnificence of its sunrises and sunsets in spring and autumn. The surrounding countryside has a unique charm, its peace and serenity prized by ramblers and anglers alike. The cathedral city of Ely is just four miles away and Cambridge only 20 miles.
The relaxed pace of life in Littleport makes it seem off the beaten track, but it has excellent transport links. The village’s railway station is on the main line from King’s Lynn to London, and there are half-hourly commuter services, with journey time to King’s Cross of about an hour and a quarter.
The town is also close to the A10, with links to the A11, A14 and M11. It has regular bus services to Ely and Cambridge. London Stansted is only an hour away by road or rail.
Littleport has two primary schools, one of which also provides facilities for community education. The City of Ely Community College at Ely is the local secondary school, and there are two others within reach, at Witchford (6 miles) and Soham (10 miles). There are also two co-educational independent schools close by – the King’s School at Ely, which provides day and boarding places and has an affiliated junior school for nursery, pre-prep and prep children, and Wisbech Grammar School, which offers day places. Littleport has a number of parent-toddler groups and pre-school playgroups, as well as a toy library.
Littleport has its own medical centre, St George’s, staffed by a team of GPs, and there is a dental surgery and optician in the village. The nearest general hospital, the Princess of Wales, is just a few miles away at Ely.
Just a few minutes’ drive from Littleport is the ancient cathedral city of Ely, which has a host of amenities and attractions.
Also on the river Great Ouse, the city offers a sports centre and swimming pool, a cinema, art gallery, excellent shoping, a great weekly market, and some very fine restaurants.
