Ely Cathedral



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.

The Dean's Welcome

Welcome to Ely Cathedral's new website which I hope will give you a glimpse of the wonders and glories that the Cathedral has to offer.

The Dean - The Very Revd Mark Bonney

Worship has been offered to Almighty God on this site for nearly 1400 years and the Cathedral continues to be a dynamic witness to the presence of God in the world, and of his love and care for each and every one of us.

The skill of craftsmen and women down the centuries is here for all to see; the work of contemporary artists appears alongside that of their medieval counterparts, past and present working in harmony. There is space to sit and be still, to pray and to contemplate, as well as to be immersed in a tradition that continues to grow and change.

You will find a warm welcome here reflecting the hospitality and welcome of our Benedictine forbears and more importantly reflecting the welcome that God gives to us all in Jesus Christ.
