Nice link from riverside to town

Covers quite a large area from the riverside up to just below the cathedral. A pleasant walk, good place for a picnic.

A lovely open space to enjoy the fresh air when you track from the river-side into the town center. Upon reaching the top, cross the road and go straight-over, continuing upward on a gravel path to reach the cathedral and Oliver Cromwell's house.

Excellent visual and chill-out space. Fabulous views of Cathedral in background and runs down to river. Great outdoor space, kiddies playground and bandstand and sitting areas - but space to escape if want. Close to facilities - Cutter Inn is lovely and Geoff in the vintage ice-cream van by Babalyon Bridge and Waterside Antiques is a must visit - yummy!

Ely are very fortunate to have these lovely gardens by the river. They are simple yet charming and well worth a stroll.

One of my most favourite places to watch the world go by Last time spent with a glass of wine and with chips from Alan's on Broadstreet. Watching the summer sky with Ely Cathedral in view too. Simple pleasures
