Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The tourist information is inside Oliver Cromwell house, it is worth taking the tour. Staff although very pleasant were not very helpful anything outside of Ely they had no idea. We wanted to visit Sake brewery just told us to ring them ourselves, apparently the brewery had told them their opening dates. This is one of the worst tourist information places we have ever been to.

Wonderful museum to explore for a small fee, Cromwell the man and his family history.
Very helpful staff and information gathering for our week in Cambridgeshire and beyond.
Obtained a map of Cambridge here(there is no information centre in Cambridge).

Walked up from the riverside two days running to visit Oliver Cromwells House only to find it shut both days for private parties. Very unimpressed!

The Ely Tourist Information Centre has a wide array of information available - both about Ely and further afield. We found the staff friendly and very heplful.

We visited the tourist information centre whilst on an afternoon trip to the city. We were travelling back from North Yorkshire and took the opportunity of parking up for a break. Unfortunately, on the day of our visit (Monday in September), most of Ely seems to be closed.
The centre is fairly large inside and on the day of our visit seemed to have three members of staff on duty who all seemed friendly. Our main reason for visiting the information centre was in search of a porcelain thimble souvenir though these were not available. However, there was an awful lot of information available for the potential tourist and would most certainly revisit if we were in Ely again and had more time.

We were surprised at the wide range of information available, not just for Ely but a much, much wider area even if travelling as far north as Yorkshire.

The only lady working in the shop on our first visit to Ely was extremely helpful and friendly. She advised us how best our time would be spent that Monday afternoon.
We enjoyed our visit and the places recommended.
This member of staff was a credit to Tourist Information. Thank you

We popped in to get some tourist info about the city and ended up visiting the Cromwell museum. It was very interesting and as it was half term there were some people in costume explaining about aspects of life in his time.

Plenty of maps, books about Ely and information about the area. The Cromwell museum is part of the building as this was where he lived with his family.

Lovely helpful staff. But, with the architectural treasures that Ely offers I can't understand why they don't offer a self guided tour telling us more about it. Bury st Edmunds do an excellent one which I was happy to pay £3 for. The was a free guide but it was pretty skimpy and didn't cover anything in detail.
