There are numerous shops and market stalls located throughout Ely and the streets in the centre of the city are winding with an inviting traditional feel to them. Twice a week a local market is held and the Great River Ouse is located close by. Ely was once an island but in the 18th century the Fens were drained and the city became part of the mainland. Anyone searching for a property to buy in Ely will be happy with the sheer amount of choice on offer as there are homes to buy in the attractive countryside for those looking for peace and quiet as well as in the heart of the city close to the local shops and cafes.
Cambridge makes for a popular day trip with locals from Ely and many activities can be enjoyed there from punting the rivers to shopping in the large centres. The River Ouse in Ely itself is also a popular hotspot with many choosing to boat and fish in the part that runs just outside of the city. The University of Cambridge is famous for their part in the annual boat race against Oxford University and the rowing team train for the race in a marina in Ely.
