Ely will once again be celebrating its rich history by taking part in the National Heritage weekend next month.
Locals and visitors will be given the opportunity to explore many of the city’s most famous historic buildings for free, some of which are not usually open to the public from September 8 to 10.
Organised by the Tourist Information Centre, nine venues in the city are involved in the programme and guided walks have been arranged to take in some of the period buildings and amazing architecture.
The three-day programme will contain tours of some of Ely’s most famous attractions with a chance to experience them after dark which adds to the atmosphere and overall experience.
Other venues include King’s Ely Porta, once the main entrance to Ely Monastery and its Monastic Barn, built in 1375 during the reign of Edward III.
