Group Visits

We warmly welcome groups and organised tours.

To enhance your group visit, you may wish to include a pre-arranged guided tour. You may also choose to explore the medieval monastery precinct, visit the Stained Glass Museum or book a tower tour.

Many groups combine a visit to Ely Cathedral with a tour of Oliver Cromwell's House, or with free time to explore the city with its lovely riverside, independent retailers and regular markets.

Refreshments and lunches can be booked in advance in the friendly Almonry Restaurant with its medieval vaulting and garden with unparalleled views of the Cathedral.

Advanced booking is essential for all groups and coach parties, so we can tailor-make a visit that meets your requirements.

Please note we are only able to accommodate group visits Mondays to Saturdays.

We offer preferential rates to pre-booked groups of 15 or more. Please email our Groups and Visits Co-ordinator or call 01353 660359.
