The entrance to Ely Cathedral
Visitors to the Cathedral usually enter through the great West Door in the Galilee Porch. The term ‘Galilee’ simply means a porch or entrance. The Porch is built of Barnock stone & Purbeck marble from Dorset and is an example of Early English Gothic architecture.
Highly regarded by historians and architects from all over the world for its beauty and size, Ely Cathedral is the only UK building to be listed as one of the “Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages”. Visible for miles around, the Cathedral is often referred to as “The Ship of the Fens”.
