A trip to Ely

My destination of today, the small town of Ely in Cambridgeshire, will stay in my mind as one of the things you experience only because life decides that you should see it. It makes me both sad and excited to think about all the amazing places in the wold that are waiting to be discovered – and that I will never be able to see.

The tourism website for Ely can be found here. I went on the day of the Eel Festival, but the town is lovely on any sunny weekend.

Ely is a small town of 15 000 people located a 13 minute train ride away from Cambridge. The town is a very popular destination for a day trip.

I found a local market and these gorgeous bowls. Look at those colours!

You should definitely try Yum Yum Tree Fudge. They have so many different and interesting flavours and I had to get the Valencia Orange. When I finish that I will definitely order some more. Seriously, any other fudge I will have from now on will feel inferior to this.

The Ely Cathedral is the most popular tourist destination in Ely. It is very remarkable because it is located on a hill and it looks very impressive when you take the train into Cambridge.

The cathedral looks very impressive and I love how it is surrounded by countryside. Yes, those are real cows!

The cathedral is also beautiful on the inside. I didn’t take many pictures because I only had my phone. I will definitely come back with a good camera. I recommend climbing to the top of the tower. I didn’t do it but looking back now I think the view would have been amazing.

Beautiful flowers on the Ely Broad Street. I have ridiculously many pictures of street signs and I cannot get enough of them. They are such a British thing to me.

Speaking of British things – this driveway is so British that I had to stop to take a picture. I know it’s just trees and a fence and a sign, but still…
