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.
Portsmouth is a city located in the county of Hampshire on the south coast of England. Visitors to the city are spoilt with things to do and places to see. For those interested in naval history the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is a must. The Dockyard has 800 years of naval history and is the oldest dry dock in the world, as well as being the home for two-thirds of the Royal Navy's surface fleet. Alternatively, get a birds-eye view of the city and ascend the Spinnaker Tower or find out more about the historic landings at the D-Day Museum. Portsmouth's location makes it an ideal base for exploring the rest of Hampshire and the south of England. Discover the region's fascinating villages, towns, cities, waterfront and rolling countryside. Gosport is just on the other side of Portsmouth Harbour and can be reached by a four minute ferry ride. Gosport has a lovely combination of waterfront activities and peaceful countryside which visitors enjoy. Whilst there go onboard a Royal Navy Submarine, HMS Alliance, or go back in time and go aboard the first Royal Submarine, Holland 1. You can also follow the Waterfront Trail which is a 3km walk that links the town’s main attractions while gazing at the yachts gliding in and out of the marina.
