Before the fens were drained, Ramsey was an island in the Fens. The Main Street in Ramsey is the Great Whyte which extends right down to the Mere. The Mere used to supply the town with eels, fish and fowl and a means of transport.

The town of Ramsey was built up around the gate of Ramsey Abbey. The Abbey was governed by an Abbot, who in the early years also controlled most of what went on in the Town. Ramsey was visited by King Edward III with his mother and Roger Mortimer. The people of Ramsey accused the Abbots of taking a large amount of the Hugh le Despenser Treasury. The Abbots appealed to the Bishop of Ely for support against the charges. This could be one of the reasons for the omission of Ramsey in the Doomsday Book.

Ramsey is one of the five principle towns in the District of Huntingdonshire, the others being the administrative centre of Huntingdon, St Ives home of the Chapel on the Bridge, St Neots the largest town in the County of Cambridgeshire and the Roman town of Godmanchester.
