How to Travel from London to Ely

If you are planning a road trip from London to Ely, in Cambridgeshire, you should preferably use your own car since there aren’t any bus services available which will directly take you to Ely. While it takes around 1 hour and 36 minutes to reach Ely if you are travelling in your own car, a bus service will take twice that time. Whichever way route you take, always remember to take a map and a tourist guide brochure which will help you in your tour.
