About Ely

The city of Ely is situated to the north east of Cambridge, about 20 miles west of Thetford in Norfolk and about 30 miles south east of Peterborough. Approximately 15,000 people live within the 23 square miles of the city boundaries.

Ely lies in the Cambridgeshire Fens and the city itself is technically situated on an island, which forms the highest land in the Fen region at 26m above sea level. Historically, the Fens were marshland and Ely's island status was real. Since the Fens were drained in the 17th century, Ely's island status has become more of a technicality than a reality, but the Cathedral that gives the city its status remains one of the finest in England, dating from 1083.

While Ely's cathedral is its best-known tourist attraction, it is also popular for many of the other 23 Grade I and 153 Grade II-listed buildings which exist within the city.

More pragmatically for residents of Ely, the town has good road connections via the A10 and enjoys rail connections to Cambridge, London, Norwich and Peterborough and thence to the East Coast mainline. The town has its fair share of businesses and service companies, including van hire branches offering a comprehensive range of vans:

  • Medium / short wheelbase vans - e.g. Ford Transit, Vauxhall Vivaro, Renault Trafic, Volkswagen Transporter
  • Small vans - e.g. Vauxhall Combo, Ford Transit Connect, VW Caddy
  • Large / long wheelbase vans - e.g. Mercedes Sprinter XLWB, Ford Transit LWB, Renault Master
  • Luton vans & box vans (3.5 tonne / 3.5t).
