Ely has been a destination for visitors for well over a thousand years. From the age of Medieval pilgrims visiting the shrine of St Etheldreda and the magnificent Cathedral to the modern traveller coming to explore the vibrant food scene, the independent shops, the incredible heritage and the still magnificent Cathedral.

Below you’ll find all you need to know for before you arrive, once you arrive and when you’re planning that inevitable return visit.

Ely is well served by the national railway network, which links it with all of East Anglia and key parts of the Midlands and the North-West, so why not complement your visit with a relaxing train journey to our city?
