Ely also offers a wealth of attractions for visitors to explore and as the second smallest City in the country can be explored easily in a day by foot. The first port of call for many visitors to Ely is the Cathedral. This imposing structure towers across the fens for miles around. Dominating the skyline, it is one of England’s most beautiful and largest Cathedrals. Known locally as the ‘Ship of the Fens’ it is famous for its unique Octagon tower, which when lit can be seen for tens of miles. The Cathedral is also home to the only national museum dedicated to Stained Glass. If it’s history you’re interested in then Ely Museum, housed in the city’s old gaol, is an excellent place to start.

Ely’s most famous historical resident of Ely was of course Oliver Cromwell.  The Cromwell family lived in Ely for some 10 years and today you can visit their former house which has been recreated to demonstrate what 17th Century domestic life would have been like along with an exhibition on the civil war.  It also doubles as the Tourist Information Centre.

Ely has a beautiful waterside area, which is an attraction within itself, where you can explore the many cafes and restaurants or visit the art galleries.  Alternatively, simply take time out to relax and watch the river boats pass..
