Enjoy Ely Dating

The Cambridgeshire city of Ely can be found approximately fourteen miles to the north east of the University City of Cambridge. Prior to the extensive drainage of the marshland and rivers of the East Anglian Fens Ely was built on a 23-square-mile island. The city now stands on the region's highest point and derives its city status from the impressive 11th Century Cathedral which dominates the skyline.

Ely is a relatively small city, with a population of just over 15,000. Nevertheless, the settlement does provide plenty of amenities and romantic settings for couples looking to enjoy their first date within its confines. The city’s long and interesting history is reflected in its many impressive landmarks and buildings, providing the perfect setting for a couple's first romantic interlude.

Ta Bouche is on the riverside walk. It's restaurant, cocktail bar, and cafe, so suitable for just about any time of the day, although it is closed on Tuesday and Wednesdays. If you prefer something a bit older and more traditional then The Cutter Inn pub and restaurant is also on the river and is open seven days a week.

The Grade II listed The Lamb was originally a coaching inn that dates back to the 15th Century and still provides accommodation to travllers. It's one of the Old English Inn chains of pubs and restaurants. The Old Fire Station House is both a restaurant and an art gallery so you can work up an appetite while perusing the latest exhibition. The Fen House restaurant is north of Ely in the village of Littleport. There's a railway station there if you fancy a trip out from the town.

Ely's long stretches of riverside are a popular attraction for both walkers and cyclists, and you can take boat trips on the River Great Ouse and its tributaries. There are plenty of wide open spaces in which you can fill your lungs with the fresh air and your eyes with the landscapes and landmarks.

This small city boasts scores of listed buildings perhaps the most impressive being Oliver Cromwell's House, the previously mentioned Lamb Hotel and Anglesey Abbey, Gardens and Lode Mill. The 17th century former Ely gaol is now the site of the city's extensive museum and the Burwell Museum is a fascinating glimpse into the rural life of area's past.

A couple enjoying their first date in Ely can consider a leisurely stroll through the city’s historic centre, where all the expected High Street stores jostle for place along its cobbled streets. For some peace and quiet, they can head to the city’s two main parks – Abbey Park and Cathedral Park; or enjoy a stroll along the shoreline of the Great Ouse and Witham Rivers and feed the ever-hungry ducks and geese.

Ely may not exactly be the largest city in the United Kingdom; nevertheless, it packs a real punch when it comes to the number of possible dating venues at your disposal. From the magnificent cathedral, to umpteen restaurants, and tranquil parks – you will never be at a loss to work out the most ideal meeting place.
