About the Area
Wisbech is a market town, inland port and civil parish in the Fenland district in Cambridgeshire, England. In 2011 it had a population of 31,573. The town lies in the far north-east of Cambridgeshire, bordering Norfolk and only 5 miles south of Lincolnshire.
Wisbech is renowned for its elegant Georgian architecture, a legacy from an era when the town was a booming trade centre. Stroll along the Brinks or round the Crescent to see some fine Georgian houses. Then visit Peckover House and Gardens on North Brink, once the home of the Peckovers, a Quaker banking family, now in the care of the National Trust and open to visitors from spring to autumn three or four afternoons a week.
A little further along North Brink is a completely different example of Georgian architecture. Elgood’s Brewery and Gardens was one of the first Georgian breweries to be built outside London and has stood almost unchanged for more than 200 years. You can sample some of Elgood’s award winning real ales, either on a brewery tour or in one of the many Elgood’s pubs in town.
For all those historians, Wisbech has two museums; the Wisbech and Fenland in the Crescent and Octavia Hill’s Birthplace House on South Brink. The Wisbech and Fenland Museum is one of the oldest museums in the United Kingdom. It is very unusual because it is not only a museum, but also home to two historic libraries and a substantial archive, holding diocesan and borough items. The original manuscript of the Charles Dickens novel, Great Expectations, can also be found here. Wisbech also has one of the oldest surviving Georgian Theatres in the country. The Angles Theatre has just 112 seats and offers a variety of drama, dance and music in a cosy performance space.
Wisbech is justifiably proud of its 38 acres of op
