Ely bed and breakfast & hotel accommodation

Visit Ely Cambridgeshire and the surrounding villages and stay in b and b, hotel or holiday cottage accommodation provided by BedPosts members.

Ely means Eel Island, a reference to the staple diet of the Saxon inhabitants.

When Hereward the Wake held out against the Normans the place was called the Isle of Ely. The island disappeared with the draining of the Fens in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Ely Cathedral was founded in 1083 on the site of a 7th-century Benedictine abbey. Note the wonderful octagonal lantern of Alan de Walsingham, who also designed the choir stalls.

The Ely Porta is a three-storey gatehouse to the original abbey. King’s School, founded by Henry VIII, claims descent from the monastic school which Edward the Confessor attended.

Take an enjoyable walk from the cathedral to Cherry Hill Park along the bank of the River Ouse.
