    Why Move to Ely?

    Located in the east of up-market Cambridgeshire, Ely is a popular cathedral city.

    The River Great Ouse which runs through the town was a significant means of transport until the Fens were drained and Ely ceased to be an island in the seventeenth century.

    The river is now a popular boating spot and has a large marina. Although now surrounded by land, the city is still known as “The Isle of Ely”.

    The town is named after the Eels found in the surrounding waters Ely may be a small city, but its size is not to be underestimated. It is one of the most visited cities in the UK.

    Oliver Cromwell, along with his family lived in the city for around 10 years. His house is now a museum.

    Ely manages to combine countryside and city living making it ideal for everyone. Plus, low crime rates ensure that plenty of young families and retirees are attracted to the city and its outlying neighbourhoods.

    It also has a solid reputation as a great commuter location boasting direct rail connections to London (1½ hours) and Cambridge (16 minutes).

    If you are searching for a location which has great connections, and charming historical aspects but more elbow room than most UK cities, perhaps you should take a look at Ely.

    Top Tips When Moving to or From Ely

    Lund Conlon Removers & Storers have a wealth of experience to share, having been in the removal industry for many years.

    Buying a new home is an exciting opportunity but it is also a very stressful time. To help combat the stress, we have prepared some “top tips” that will hopefully help to make the whole process a little less daunting.

    • Choose a BAR-registered removal company. Using a BAR-registered company gives you the peace of mind that only comes from using a reputable, professional, and financially protected remover.
    • Inform your moving company of your move date as soon as possible.
    • Get organised well ahead of time. De-clutter. Why pay for moving things you no longer use.
    • It is never too early to start packing boxes. Label them clearly.
    • Inform everyone who needs to know of your move. Doctors, banks, DVLA, energy suppliers etc.
    • Ensure all important items such as passports (particularly for international moves), are not packed.
    • Leave enough time to give the house a thorough clean.

    Packing for a UK Move

    At Lund Conlon, we understand just how important it is to use only the best packing materials for your move.

    We train our staff to pack and wrap your precious belongings carefully and skillfully in order to avoid damage to your property.

    On your move day, the removal team will arrive with all the materials required to carry out your move.

    Your belongings will be carefully placed into a range of different-sized boxes.

    Depending on what is being packed; books, clothing, glassware, china, pots, and pans, our team are fully prepared to pack any items you may have.

    We are proud to say that our cartons are made from environmentally friendly materials so can be fully recycled.

    Bubble wrap and tissue paper are used to protect your fragile items.

    Anything requiring specialist care, such as antiques, will be packed in made-to-measure wooden crates for extra protection.

    You may be relocating to a new home a few miles away or traveling thousands of miles to an international destination.

    Irrespective of the distance, our comprehensive knowledge of the packing process will mean your effects will arrive safe and sound

    There is rarely a situation we have not encountered.

    You can rest assured that you are in safe hands with Lund Conlon Removers & Storers.

    Packing for a European or International Move

    Lund Conlon has as many years of experience in moving people to Europe and Internationally as it has within the UK.

    The packing process is largely the same for moves further afield, however, extra padding and covering will be used to minimize movement during transport.

    As the packing commences, the team will complete a comprehensive inventory of all your belongings as each box is filled or item wrapped.

    Our experienced pre-move surveyor will provide you beforehand with the customs regulations pertaining to your destination country.

    Depending on where in the world your consignment needs to go, your effects could travel by sea, air, or road.

    International consignments are generally containerised, and sent by sea.

    Journey times vary according to country, but, it can take several weeks for your consignment to arrive at its destination countries port of entry.

    It is vital that everything is secure and well packed as these large vessels often encounter rough seas.

    Long road journeys are also subject to a lot of vibration which can sometimes result in load shifting. Protecting and securing the load tightly is  imperative.

    Irrespective of how your goods are transported Lund Conlon’s first-class packers work hard to make sure that everything arrives in one piece.


    At Lund Conlon we pride ourselves on delivering a first-class service.

    However, no matter how meticulously our moves are carried out, there are risks involved which are outside our control. Transporting your consignment is a classic example.

    Whilst we may have packed and loaded your effects with utmost care and attention, there is always a possibility, however slight, that an accident could occur whilst they are in transit.

    This is why we offer our customers insurance cover.

    If you provide us with an insurance declaration of the value of your goods, the amount of our liability to you in the event of loss or damage to those goods will be a maximum of £50,000.

    We can accept insurance liability for a higher amount, in which case we may make an additional charge.

    If you decide not to take out any insurance with us, you may find your own house insurance has some form of cover for goods in transit.

    For anything we move for you which is not covered by either your own or our insurance, in the event of any loss or damages, caused by negligence or breach of contract on our part.

    Our liability to you will be assessed as a sum equivalent to the cost of their repair or replacement, subject to a maximum liability of £40 per item.

    Just speak to our helpful surveyor when he undertakes your house move survey and he can clarify the process for you.

    Shopping in Ely

    Shopping is easy and convenient and parking is free.

    Pop into Ely’s city center and there are a host of shops waiting to be discovered.

    A variety of national chain stores are dotted about the town.

    Peacocks, White Stuff, Fat Face, and Sports Direct can be found around Market Place.

    Alongside these shops, you will also find a great deal of independents.

    Many of these individual stores are housed in buildings full of old-world charm and character.

    Many of Ely’s independents are owned and run by local families.

    Jensens sits on Market Street. It is a Scandinavian-style clothing and accessories store. Ideal for something different.

    Little Roos is also family owned and sells clothing for the 0-12 years age group.

    Weekly shopping can be done at either Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, or the large Tesco Superstore.

    Market days have been a feature of the city for hundreds of years.

    The General market is held on Thursdays and on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Saturday of every month.

    Market days are complemented by a craft fair held on Saturdays.

    Of course, a trip to Cambridge is always on the cards when you live in Ely.

    A short train trip away and you can shop till you drop.

    Working in Ely

    The district is almost entirely agricultural and has always been so, however, today the Ely economy has grown and offers a wider base in many sectors.

    Ely is a growing primary retail and service centre for the district.

    To cater to the annual visitors who flock to the city, leisure and tourism also contribute heavily to Ely’s economy by supplying thousands of jobs.

    With Cambridge being so close, residents have the choice to commute to a larger city for work.

    Cambridge enjoys a strong economy with strength in sectors such as research & development, software consultancy, high-value engineering, creative industries, pharmaceuticals, and tourism.

    If you are moving to Ely and need to find work in the area by far the most popular method of securing a job these days, is via online platforms.

    Totaljobs have hundreds of positions within a 10-mile radius of the city.

    All you need do is upload a copy of your CV and start applying.

    Schools & Education in Ely

    The region is well known for supplying quality education.

    When you are new to an area, the best place to begin your search for a school is via the local council website.

    Cambridgeshire County Council Website has all the relevant information needed to both find a school and to enrol your child.

    Another great source of reliable information about the best schools in Ely is the School Guide website.

    Locrating is also a tried and tested and packed with great insights into local schools across Ely.

    The 16+ age group have several good choices in or close to Ely with Ely College providing Post 16 education via its sixth form.

    A large school with around 1300 students, Ofsted has rated Ely College as “good” with “outstanding” features.

    Private schooling is available at King’s. Ely’s only independent school and one of the oldest schools in the world.

    Public Transport in Ely

    Ely rail station has five major railway lines which emanate from the station.

    Combined they provide services North to King’s Lynn, northwest to Peterborough, east to Norwich, southeast to Ipswich and south to Cambridge and London.

    Stagecoach offers a network of frequent and reliable buses, which provide excellent access to all parts of Ely and the District.

    Stansted Airport sits south of Ely, around 47 miles away or an hour by road.

    The busy airport serves over 18 million passengers a year flying people all over the world.

    Driving in Ely

    Connections by road to and from Ely, are more than adequate.

    Ely lays on the north south A10 road from London to King’s Lynn and the east to west A142 road.

    Larger towns and cities can also be reached by road including Cambridge, London, and Peterborough.

    The A10 heading north is the quickest route to reach the Norfolk coast.

    The little coastal town of Hunstanton takes around an hour to reach when the traffic is good.

    Another seaside destination is Holkham Beach. A little further afield, however, it is a very popular visitor location due to its miles of sandy foreshore.

    Ely Property

    Ely may be regarded as upmarket however its property is surprisingly well-priced.

    Affordable living is one of the reasons that attract so many buyers to Ely.

    When compared to its larger neighbour Cambridge, homes in Ely offer far more value for money coming in thousands of pounds under its neighbour’s values.

    Unfortunately, homes are very in demand across the town.

    Competition is pretty fierce with sellers almost always getting the asking price or even higher.

    The current housing stock is varied and would suit all buyers, from first-timers to retirees.

    Renting a Home in Ely

    Increasing numbers of us are choosing to rent a home instead of buying one.

    The unstable economic conditions and rising housing costs make it particularly difficult for first-time buyers to get anywhere near the property ladder, let alone get on to it.

    Unfortunately, this has created incredible pressure on the rental market across the UK.

    As Ely is such a sought-after location, the letting market is particularly limited with properties being leased in record times.

    With average rents in the UK during 2023 now often surpassing the £1,000 mark, finding a suitable rental in Ely could prove both a challenge and expensive.
