Ely, in Cambridgeshire, is a cathedral city located roughly 15 miles to the north east of Cambridge. Construction of Ely Cathedral began in 1083 by the first Norman Bishop, Simeon. Construction of the cathedral continued until the dissolution of the abbey in 1539 during the Reformation. Under the guidance of George Gilbert Scott the cathedral was restored between 1845 and 1870.
The city has two Sites of Special Scientific Interest: a former Kimmeridge Clay quarry and one of the United Kingdom's best remaining examples of medieval ridge and furrow agriculture. Agriculture remains the region's main economy but the city had been the centre of local pottery production from the 12th century to 1860.
There are just under 80 Grade I and Grade II listed buildings in Ely and include the Norman Ely Castle, St Mary's Vicarage and the Lamb Hotel.
Ely railway station lies on the Fen Line and is a major railway hub with the Cambridge to Ely section opening in 1845. Five major railway lines—excluding the former Ely and St Ives Railway—emanate from this hub: north to King's Lynn, north-west to Peterborough, east to Norwich, south-east to Ipswich and south to Cambridge and London. There are direct trains to Cambridge, London, most of East Anglia, the Midlands and the North. T here are connecting services to many other parts of England and to Scotland.
The cathedral city of Chichester is located on the south coast of England in the county of West Sussex. There are plenty of things to do and see in Chichester in addition to marvelling at the city's cathedral. Visit Pallant House, the Ox Market Art Galleries, Fishbourne's famous Roman Palace, Tangmere Aviation Museum or walk the ancient city walls. For a less leisurely time the city can also offer visitors a number of activities including watersports, golf and dedicated cycle tracks to explore. Located a few miles from the centre of Chichester is the Goodwood Estate which is set in over twelve thousand acres in the Sussex Downs. The Estate is home to motor racing, horse racing, golf and a stunning art collection in the House. The house and its immediate grounds are the site of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed, whilst elsewhere on the estate the Goodwood Motor Circuit hosts the annual Goodwood Revival Meeting, and Goodwood Racecourse hosts Glorious Goodwood and a number of other race meetings. The estate also includes the Goodwood Golf Course and a cricket pitch, home to Goodwood Cricket Club.
