Learning & Families

Learning is fun, immersive and hands on

We have developed a range of learning activities that can be accessed in school, at home and at the Cathedral itself. You can meet characters from the past with the help of expert guides from the present to find out how the Cathedral came to be and how it has served the people of Ely since the first place of worship was built here in 673 AD.

Visiting with Children

Children are warmly welcome at Ely Cathedral. We have a number of children's trails to be enjoyed. Entry is free when accompanied by an adult.
