The Re­gal Re­treat

Essentials (South Africa) - - TRAVE | TV SHOW LOCATIONS -

If you loved TheCrown, the Net­flix drama about the reign of Queen El­iz­a­beth II, then take a trip to Ely, Cam­bridgeshir­e, and visit the city’s cathe­dral, which was used as the lo­ca­tion for the wed­ding of Princess El­iz­a­beth and Prince Philip, dou­bling as West­min­ster Abbey. With its 14th-cen­tury oc­tag­o­nal lantern tower and or­nately dec­o­rated ceil­ing, the cathe­dral is truly a won­drous sight. And it’s no stranger to the small – and big – screen, as it’s also fea­tured in the King’sSpeech and El­iz­a­beth:TheGold­enAge. but there’s much more to the city to en­joy: em­bark on Ely’s eel trail, named after the fish found in the city’s marsh­land – the route takes in around 18 lo­cal at­trac­tions, in­clud­ing the Bishop’s Palace, Ju­bilee Gar­dens and Quai D'Or­say.
