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.

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 city of Swansea, located in South Wales, has a sweeping waterfront that leads to Mumbles and then on to the beautiful Gower Peninsular.

One of Swansea’s museums is Wales’ newest and the other is Wales’ oldest – Dylan Thomas even described it as a “museum that belongs in a museum.” For outdoor activities why not explore some of Swansea’s many parks and gardens – 5 of them (Clyne Gardens, Singleton Botanical Gardens, Victoria Park, Cwmdonkin Park and Brynmill Park) have a Green Flag Award and are great places to go with the family.
