This photo journal covers the two main town in the county of Cambridgeshire – Cambridge and Ely. Cambridge needs no introduction to anyone really so here is a trivia about Ely – The Ely Cathedral has been the filming grounds for a number of Hollywood productions including the Netflix original series The Crown, more of the Oscar famed movies include ‘Elizabeth the Golden Age‘ (2007) starring Cate Blanchett, ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ (2007) and ‘The King’s Speech‘ (2009) with Colin Firth. Shekhar Kapur’s link to Ely (he was the director of ‘Elizabeth the Golden Age’) was what originally drew me to this little town in the county of Cambridgeshire.
Unfortunately, I donot have many pictures of Ely so I move on to its more famous neighbor – the town of Cambridge, but I do promise to come back and post pictures if I do stumble upon them later.
Cambridge University, founded by a group of Oxford scholars, usually comes second in line to the throne of knowledge in the UK, Oxford always remaining its crown jewel. However while the rivalry continues through the centuries, one thing that Cambridge can definitely boast about is the sheer number of Nobel Laureates that it has educated, 89 vs Oxford’s 58.

And thats me saying ‘Bye Bye’ everyone. Until next time… Hope you have enjoyed the first edition of the Photo Journal series from my travels in the UK. Do come back for more.
