Explore and Discover Ely with our two unique treasure hunt style walks.

Enjoy them separately, or take both, depending upon how much time you have and how many clues and pictures you want to find!

Ely is an ancient Cambridgeshire city, occupying the largest 'island' in the Fens. Rich in folk history, it is the 3rd smallest city in England. That said, there is an abundance of interesting places to explore. Most commanding is the resplendent cathedral, built by William the Conqueror. Then there are almshouses, antiquated dwellings, one of the oldest schools in the world, a 19th century brewhouse, stories of eels, and the vibrant marina, built on the Ouse.

If you visit by train, don't miss the stunning approach to the city!

Get Curious with our fabulous walks of discovery, and have fun reading our stories about the most interesting facts.
