Ely was known as the ‘Isle of Eels’, this was because it was only accessible by boat until the waterlogged Fens were drained in the 17th century. 

What’s the best thing about living in Ely?

Ely, Cambridgeshire Riverside
Ely, Cambridgeshire Riverside

With its high standard of living, Ely is regularly praised for having one of the best qualities of life in the UK.

  • Steeped in History – The cathedral is one of the most beautiful buildings in the country, dates back to the 12th century, and sitting proudly on the flat, black landscape, it truly deserves its name The Ship of the Fens.
  • Good enough for Hollywood – It’s so pretty it’s gained film star status. The city has become a prime location for movie makers. Among the famous films shot there are Al Pacino’s Revolution and The King’s Speech , with Colin Firth, and more recently Netflix’s The Crown.
  • Riverside Strolling – Although it may be not quite as scenic as the Cam, the Great Ouse is still pretty grand. The Boat Race was staged on it in 1944 instead of on the Thames, because of the war. And with its mix of house boats, rowers and the odd fisherman Ely’s riverside is bustling with activity most days.
  • Diversity – From the inaugural Ely Folk festival to the Ely Eel festival and last year’s first ever LGBT+ Pride event – Ely packs a punch for such a small city. Hundreds of people attended the all day long celebration in Jubilee Gardens last August and proved just how inclusive and welcoming the city is.
