Ely is a perfect one day or short break destination. The first port of call for any visitor to Ely today will almost certainly be 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..
