The George Hotel Huntingdon is situated in the heart of the historic Cambridgeshire market town of Huntingdon. With easy access for the A1 and A14 only minutes away. The historic George Hotel was once the home of Oliver Cromwell's grandfather. It was first recorded in the reign of Henry VIII, and in about 1550 it became the property of a brewer called Henry Cromwell, whose son is buried in the neighbouring churchyard and whose grandson Oliver was a gentleman farmer in the neighbourhood, until a higher destiny called. There is even a tradition that the Protector was actually born in the inn. The Cromwell's were a prominent local land-owning family and Oliver Cromwell was born here in Huntingdon. If you want to find out more, the Oliver Cromwell Museum is just 200 yards from the hotel. Shakespeare plays are performed every year in the last week of June and the first week in July in the pleasant, flower filled courtyard. Today the George Hotel is a bustling hotel - a firm favourite with locals and travellers. Large car park.
Come in from the A1 or A14 travelling towards Huntingdon and follow the Huntingdon ring road into the town centre.
