Ely Wellbeing Walk

Join a friendly and relaxed walk through the country park and along the river in Ely, as part of our series of natural heritage walks in the fen edge communities.

A slower paced, easy access walk, with an opportunity to see the local countryside, be outside in nature, and enjoy a natter. The walk will last 1 hour, taking in between 1.5 and 2 miles.

The route is along paths; some are hard, others are surfaced (bark, dirt and gravel).
