Join us on a trip to the fabulous Ely Cathedral.
Ely is home to the magnificent Ely Cathedral that can trace its origins to the 7th century. Situated close to the University, several Bishops of Ely have been instrumental in shaping the history of the University. Notably, the medieval Bishop of Ely, Hugh de Balsham was instrumental in founding Peterhouse (and in the process, expelling the secular scholars residing in St. John's hospital). More recently, John Alcock, who was also a Bishop of Ely, founded Jesus College.
