The cathedral city of Ely is perfect for a weekend break. Steeped in more than 1,000 years of history, it exudes English charm at every turn with its beautiful monastic buildings, superb views and traditional English tea rooms which sit perfectly beside modern cafes and bars. A must see is Ely Cathedral. Built in the 12th century, this awe inspiring building offers stunning views of the local area from the Lantern Towers, as well as housing the United Kingdom's only museum of stained glass. Also worth checking out is Oliver Cromwell's former house. Here, this tremendously important historical figure lived for ten years with his family before becoming ""Lord Protector""; the Head of England's short-lived spell as a republic in the mid-1600s. The Ely Museum is also worth a visit. Set in a former old 'gaol', it tells the story of the town from prehistoric times, right through to the modern day.
