Quaint town of Ely, Cambridgeshire – United Kingdom – October, 2018

Before we left from Canada, our friend Greg mentioned that he wanted to show us around Ely. At that time we really had no idea what to expect in Ely. We were pleasantly surprised at how quaint and lovely Ely is. It’s exactly what I had thought a small english town would look like. The architecture was fantastic and everything was well kept.

I love all the houses with vines covering them!

The most spectacular site here is the Ely Cathedral. Construction began in 1083 and it was restored between 1845 and 1870.

Also Ely has a great walking street and there just happened to be a little market happening while we were there. We sat down for a coffee and watched the street musicians play.

It’s worth visiting Ely, it wasn’t overly crowded and it’s such a quaint little town.

Where we stayed: Gregory James (our good friend) B&B 👍👍

    The history of such places astounds me! A cathedral built in 1083? 935 years ago. Amazing!
