Hello to all my virtual friends! Today, I want to tell you all about my getaway to Ely. I had long waited for this trip to happen and I finally managed to arrive to Ely and other towns in Cambridgeshire. My getaway list included not only Ely but also Cambridge, Huntingdon, Thetford and Chatteris. I searched online for Ely hotels and narrowed down my choices to: Travelodge Hotel (Witchford Road) and Lamb Inn (2 Lynn Road). I finally decided on the Travelodge Hotel, as a friend of mine said she had been there before and liked it. I covered all matters, reserving a taxi cab to make sure I did not have to worry about transportation.
I particularly wanted to visit Ely, as I had heard that Oliver Cromwell’s House was here and possible to be seen. I enjoyed this visit more than I thought and I told all my friends about it. The second thing I visited was the Ely Cathedral and I was surprised at how beautiful it actually was. If you love history and you have a passion for architecture, then you have to visit this cathedral at least once in your life. My mother had already told me all about Ely, as she had often come with my grandmother to this town. The two of them often prefer to hire a wheelchair access taxi, so as to cover the physical needs of grandma. When traveling on business to Ely, my mother preferred executive cars.
I selected one of those minibuses to take me and my group from Ely to Gatwick airport. The driver covered the 112 miles distance in 1 hour and 56 minutes and we had to pay only £804. An airport taxi took one of my friends from Ely to London Stansted airport. She called me later to tell me that it took 51 minutes for the 46 miles distance to be covered and that she paid £82 for a saloon car. As for myself, I stopped on the road at Regent Hotel (41 Regent Street, Cambridge) and at Sun Hotel (Sun Street, Hitchin). When I got hungry, I stopped at Klub Polonia (231 Chesterton Road) and at Strada (25B-26 Sun Street, Hitchin).
