Getting there & away
Ely is on the A10, 15 miles northeast of Cambridge. Following the Fen Rivers Way, it’s a lovely 17-mile towpath walk.
Bus 19 and X12 run every hour from Cambridge’s Drummer St bus station (one hour), or in Ely from the bus stop on Market St. Trains are much quicker and more frequent (15 minutes, every 20 minutes). There are also twice hourly trains to Peterborough (£7.40, 35 minutes) and Norwich (£12.20, 55 minutes), and hourly services to King’s Lynn (£5.60, 30 minutes).
