June 2013 visit to United Kingdom

Ely and the Ely Cathedral

We took the train from London and walked up from the station

Impressive cathedral in a small, old town. What we did not know was that there was a large flower show in the cathedral and crowds.

< Tents set up for events and food.

Complete with a pond.

< Flowers everywhere.
