Located just 15 miles north of Cambridge, Ely - for somewhere so compact - seems to have it all: a main line railway station, superb shopping, great schools and a personality all of its own. It's hardly surprising that it's popular with London and Cambridge commuters looking for a more affordable home and a community atmosphere.
The cathedral is the focal point of the town. Dating to the 12th century, it's visible (in this flat part of the world) for miles around and is known as 'the ship of the Fens'. When it comes to shopping, there are all your normal high street favourites, plus some enticing independent stores, pubs, eateries, tea shops and antique emporia. The city also has a brand new leisure centre and cinema, a pretty park, and annual fairs, festivals and events. These include Aquafest, a summer tradition where people make and paddle homemade rafts on the River Ouse and generally get very wet.
