The Maltings is a truly memorable venue in the heart of the city of Ely, on the doorstep of Cambridge and Newmarket.

Formerly a Victorian brewery, The Maltings is a historical treasure on Ely’s picturesque riverside.  Housing the renowned Ely-Ribe Tapestry and retaining many of its unique architectural features, it is the city’s top Conference and Wedding venue, as well as a favourite destination for locals and tourists to meet, relax and watch a movie at the cinema, the annual Pantomime or a performance by the local dance schools.

By Ely’s riverside it is an ideal spot for any event!
