Ely Cathedral is fully open for anyone wishing to visit or worship in this beautiful building.

In order to comply with social distancing guidelines we are asking people to book tickets in advance of their visit online as we are limiting the number of people who can access the building at any one time. There are several other safety measures in place. Cathedral staff, guides and volunteers will be on hand to ensure you have an enjoyable experience. Entrance is via the West Door (main entrance) only and open to visitors from 10am to 4pm (Last entry 3.30pm), Monday to Saturday and 1pm to 3.30pm (Last entry 3pm) on Sundays. 

A number of services have resumed in the Cathedral including the 10.30am Eucharist and Evensong at 4pm every Sunday. If you would like to attend the Sunday services, click here for further details and booking information on all our public worship. You are also very welcome to join us for Evensong or Evening Prayer which take place daily at 5.30pm from Monday to Saturday. We are particularly delighted to welcome back our Cathedral Choirs who will be singing Evensong in the weekdays during term time. We still continue to stream some services on YouTube and warmly welcome virtual worshippers from across the globe.

We thank you for your patience and support and we look forward to welcoming you into the Cathedral.
