Ely is the second smallest city in England with arguably one of the most breathtaking Cathedrals. Ely is a 32 minute drive from us or about an hour on the train from Newmarket.
The main attraction is the Cathedral that towers high above the trees. You can wander the grounds of the Cathedral, take a picnic in the meadows or book a visitors pass to take a look inside. The cathedral was a location for filming Elizabeth: The Golden Age starring Cate Blanchett and Clive Owen.
Another historical spot to visit is Oliver Cromwell's House. Step back in time and explore the home of the man who killed the King but refused the crown.
