Ely Tips

Ely Cathedral is one of those buildings that take your breath away. The fact that it dominates the skyline for miles around is impressive enough but inside.....absolutely spectaclar and if you time your visit correctly sit in a pugh and listen to evensong...an incredible experience - Nick..a charmed visitor

Apart from visiting the Cathedral and after you’ve explored the shops, walk down the fairly steep hill from the square, until you come to the canal, on the left hand side near the fascinating antique shop spread out on several floors you will see the prettiest Georgian house that serves the best cream tea ever… perhaps it’s the setting on the canal or the many ducks and geese wandering about or maybe the narrow boats, but it’s a secret worth sharing just a little way along the canal you can buy duck food, and as soon as you start there are dozens all around you - Sharon
