Ely is an hour from London Kings Cross and we are 8 minutes walk from Ely Railway Station
Head for the riverside and we are next to the Antiques Centre and by the bridge over to the marina. From the cathedral, follow the High Street and keep straight on: through the Market Place, down Forehill and into Waterside (8 mins).
From the Railway Station, head towards the town and after the little roundabout turn right into Annesdale. Then keep pretty well straight on, joining the river bank and passing the Cutter Pub and the Maltings Restaurant till you find us by the next bridge.
From all directions except Newmarket:
Follow the Ely by-pass anti-clockwise to the end (till you pass Tesco).
At the roundabout bear left (sign-posted 'Town centre');
Turn right into Broad Street in 150yards; (sign-posted 'Town centre')
At the end of Broad St (where the road swings left) turn right.
Then almost immediately - just after the zebra crossing - stick to the middle of the road and (instead of following the traffic round to the left) turn into Waterside, straight ahead of you. (Beware it's an awkward junction.)
Keep straight on for 300 yards (or 300 metres, whichever you prefer). We are just about the last building on the left by the foot of the bridge over the river, just after the large Antiques Centre.
With luck you'll find somewhere to park nearby. If you have difficulty, our suggestion is this. Turn round and go back up Waterside, and where it gets narrow, fork right into Willow Walk. Follow this street slowly round keeping right and it will bring you back down to the river and the Fishermen's car park. then it's an easy walk back along the river to the tearoom.
Over the river and under the railway bridge (unlees you are in a tall vehicle)
Past Tesco and straight over the roundabout;
See 3, 4, 5 & 6 above
There is usually free parking close by - if in difficulty try the fisherman's car park along the river and behind the tearoom - go back up Waterside, fork right in 100 yards and keep right. To get back to us, just follow the riverbank.
