Ely riverside

Ely provides an ideal base for excursions to many places of interest with direct rail links to Cambridge, Norwich and London.

The city itself is small and a  safe environment while offering plenty to see and do.


Stay with a local homestay host, or you can choose a hotel or self-catering accommodation. 


Ely Cathedral


Although the UK government's restrictions have now been lifted, Covid-19 is still prevalent.

To help keep you, and us, as safe as possible, we do encourage all staff, students and visitors to remain vigilant, and if experiencing symptoms to test (if possible), get vaccinated if you haven't already done so and are eligible, and please don't attend lessons if Covid is suspected.

Advice about symptoms and more can be found at
