“Striving to be a Christian Community of Worship, Welcome and Care”

Thousands of visitors come to Ely Cathedral each year, from all over the world. Few are ever disappointed, for there is something here for everyone. Lovers of architecture will rejoice in the many different styles, blending to make the whole. History abounds around every corner, and the beauty created by artists in wood, stone and glass is everywhere.

For young people, we offer a variety of experiences and activities that support and enrich the National Curriculum.

For adults, public debates and lectures provide opportunities for reflection on moral issues and Pilgrimage Tours and Ely Experience weekends give a unique insight into the Cathedral and its meaning.
