The Huntingdon constituency is a rural and affluent community, with good transport links to both London and Cambridge although the A14 is increasingly congested.
The neighbouring town of Huntingdon and Godmanchester are in the north of the seat with St Neots to the south.
It was one of the few seats in the Anglia region to see a shift away from the Conservatives at the 2010 election.
- Conservative majority in 2010: 10,819
