Changes to Visitor Opening Hours
Very occasionally we may need to close our doors to visitors for a service, event, filming or maintenance; or restrict visitors from certain parts of the Cathedral. We are aware that people travel long distances to visit Ely Cathedral so we try to minimise periods of closure as much as possible.

As soon as we know about a closure the information will be posted below. Please remember to check this page for any last minute changes prior to your visit as some events may have to be arranged at short notice
