Group Travel

East Cambs welcomes groups of all sizes and ages whether it’s a coach party, a school trip, a get-together with friends or a family gathering. When visiting the district as a group it is likely that you will be coming in a coach or by train.


Ely’s city centre can easily be reached via the A10 Cambridge – King’s Lynn and by following the brown visitor signs upon reaching your destination.

We encourage coach drivers to use the Drop off/Pick up point either in front of Ely Tourist Information Centre (Oliver Cromwell's House, St Mary's Street CB7 4HF) or in front of the Cathedral (The Gallery CB7 4DH). Please be aware that these bays are limited to a 15-minute stay. Public toilets are within close proximity to both drop off points.

Free coach parking is located at Ely City Football Club, Downham Road, Ely CB6 2SH which is approximately five minutes from the city centre and has a number of food outlets and toilets.
