Points of interest: Wisbech is the perfect place for a day out or a weekend break. Wisbech is renowned for its elegant Georgian architecture, a legacy from an era when the town was a booming trade centre. You can stroll along the Brinks or round the Crescent to see some fine Georgian houses. Then you can visit Peckover House 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, 5 afternoons a week. A little further along North Brink is a completely different example of Georgian architecture. Elgoods 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 Elgoods’ award-winning real ales, either on a brewery tour or in one of the many Elgoods pubs in town. Wisbech has two museums; the Wisbech & Fenland Museum in the Crescent and the Octavia Hill’s Birthplace House on South Brink. It 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. Opposite the theatre is the Luxe Cinema, a stylish independent cinema offering film lovers a new experience, with its comfy leather seats and bar and a new fully digital cinema ‘The Light Cinema’ opened in 2014.
