B&B in Ely

The cathedral city of Ely lies in the heart of Cambridgeshire, along the banks of the River Great Ouse, some 15 miles north of Cambridge. It's a historic place, mainly known for the magnificent Ely Cathedral and its unique Octagon Tower. Whether you're coming on a historic family break or a romantic weekend getaway, it's simply impossible to get bored when you stay at an Ely bed and breakfast. You could while away your days ambling through the museums and galleries, or catch up on a little shopping in the many bookshops and antique stores. If you visit at the right time, don't miss a trip to the award-winning Farmers' Market. It's not all about the town, though. If you've brought the car, be sure to bring your walking boots, too, because you're not going to want to miss a hike around the beautiful Fens.

  • Have a romantic break in the heart of Cambridgeshire
  • Wake up in a guestroom with historic character
  • Make use of the B&B's many facilities
  • Kick off the day with a proper English breakfast

Edwardian Family Homes and Centuries-Old B&Bs, Ely

While the town has its fair share of hotels, nothing beats the homely atmosphere and friendly welcome of an Ely bed and breakfast. Plus, they can often be a fraction of the cost of a hotel, meaning you can save your money for the attractions and places to eat. Take some time to chat with the owners when you arrive – they know all the best things to do and are happy to help you plan your break. If you're sold on a B&B, the best place to start looking is Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed descriptions and photos. All you need to do is search by date, location and budget, scan through the properties and book in just a few clicks. You're not short of choices, either. Some are housed in centuries-old buildings overlooking the cathedral. Others are detached Edwardian family homes, with just a limited number of guestrooms. There are also several budget options that offer much more than you would expect for the money. Whichever you decide on, you're always guaranteed a comfortable stay when you book through Expedia.

Checking into your bed and breakfast in Ely is always a breeze and while you are settling into the room you can make use of the facilities, which often include things like a kettle for making hot drinks, a flat-screen TV mounted on the wall and complimentary WiFi. All but the most budget options have ensuite bathrooms stocked with toiletries, and a hairdryer. While you are looking around on Expedia, you'll find other features, like views over the historic monuments or a desk where you can catch up on a few emails. If you're bringing the whole family, you won't have any trouble finding family-sized or interconnecting rooms on Expedia. Come daybreak, there'll always be a cooked breakfast – with veggie options available, too, of course – waiting for you downstairs. If Ely doesn't sound right for your break, how about a few nights discovering London activities, instead?

Summer Cruises and Magnificent Historical Sites Near Your B&B, Ely

When you stay at an Ely bed and breakfast, the hardest thing is knowing what to do first. A good introduction is Ely Cathedral, a historic building that dates back almost 1,000 years. While you are there, don't miss a visit to the Stained Glass Museum, which houses more than 100 original windows, some dating back to the 13th century. Next up, you could visit Oliver Cromwell's House, the well-preserved former home of the divisive Lord Protector. History buffs shouldn't miss Ely Museum, which takes visitors on a journey though the region's past, or the Prickwillow Museum, which houses a unique collection of working diesel engines. If you visit between March and October, you could board the Liberty Belle for a summer cruise along the River Great Ouse.
