Ely Cathedral Conference Centre

serving the Community by offering a welcoming meeting place

A Day out in Ely


The city of Ely is rich in history, charm and beauty and its magnificent Norman cathedral is regarded as the jewel in its crown. The medieval cathedral, known locally as the Ship of the Fens, is famous for its unique Octagon tower, which when lit up at night can be seen for miles around. A visit to Ely Cathedral wouldn't be complete without a guided tour of the cathedral or a climb up one of their celebrated towers.


The cathedral also houses the Stained Glass Museum which has an exhibition of more than 100 original stained glass windows and is the only one of its kind in the UK. Their shop has a selection of wonderful books, cards and many hand-made glass items.


Ely's most famous resident Oliver Cromwell lived in the city for many years and his former home houses the city’s Tourist Information Centre.

Tours of the house, City Walks, Ghost Walks as well as optional evening tours and costumed guides can be arranged.


A bright and friendly local history museum, located in the Bishop's Gaol in the centre of Ely, the Museum is the history centre for the Isle of Ely & the Fens. It takes you on a journey through time from prehistory to the twentieth century.
Displays include original prison cells, fossils that can be touched, Roman remains and an archive film of the Fens including punt guns and eel catching.
