Schools in Ely

The charming cathedral city of Ely, Cambridgeshire, is rich in history and scenic beauty. With a population of 20,256 (as of 2011), it's one of England's smallest cities, situated on an elevated location within the Fens' historic low-lying landscape, where it is beloved as the largest island in the region. Ely's most prominent landmark is its magnificent Norman Cathedral, over 900 years old and a testament to its medieval past. Visitors can also explore a wealth of historic attractions dating back to ancient times, including Oliver Cromwell's House, Ely Museum, and the city's well-preserved medieval gateways and Cathedral Close. The unique water landscape, with the river Great Ouse running through it, has shaped Ely's rich history, shaping the fertile soil and making it an ideal location for farming. The city's watery past also added to its mystique, with its original name, The Isle of Eels, reflecting both its wetland setting and an important historical role in the region. Ely is easily accessible by road and rail, providing convenient connections to Cambridge, Newmarket, and the Norfolk Heritage coast. The city's tranquil beauty and scenic riverside, along with its rich cultural heritage, make it a popular destination for relaxation, exploration, and enjoyment of the great outdoors.
