Where to find us
Cambridgeshire CB7 4UN
The majority of the Museum is suitable for wheel chair access.
A hearing aid loop is also available.
The Museum is to be found on the B1382 at the eastern fringe of Prickwillow village, by the bridge over the River Lark, just a few miles from Ely, Lakenheath and Mildenhall. For those arriving by car, the Museum has its own large (free) car park.
The location is ideal for a picnic on the river bank, which also has moorings for those arriving by boat.
Travelling to the Museum
by public transport
If you are arriving at Ely by train, there is, unfortunately, no regular public transport service between Ely and Prickwillow, but there is the new bookable minibus service (see below). Other options are to cycle (by hiring a bike), use a taxi or walk.
NEW! East Cambs Connect flexible minibus service
East Cambs Connect is a new bookable, flexible, door to door, mini bus service for EVERYONE living, working and visiting East Cambridgeshire who can’t access scheduled bus services to where they want to go. The service runs during the week, meaning it can bring you to the Museum when it is open on Mondays and Tuesdays. The telephone booking line is available Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm. You need to book at least a day in advance. Telephone 01353 612699 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Walking to the Museum from Ely Station
The Museum is a pleasant walk of almost 5 miles from the station using two Long Distance Paths and takes in Ely's attractive river frontage, pubs, cafés, and restaurants.
Starting from the station walk south east on the A142 for a short distance to the bridge over the River Ouse. Pick up the Fen Rivers Way running North at this point.
Follow the Fen Rivers Way for 1.8 miles beside the River Ouse. At this point the Fen Rivers Way crosses the Hereward Way, and this becomes your route. Cross the River Ouse here using the quaintly named Cuckoo Bridge. Look out for marsh harriers, maybe even a bittern in the reed beds! The Hereward Way follows the old bank of the Ouse North East into Prickwillow to pick up the River Lark just outside the Museum where our welcoming café awaits!
