The Hayward Theatre and Recital Hall are accessed via Church Lane, which is a one way street. To find them, as you come into Ely heading north from the A10, you will see St Mary’s Church on your right immediately after the Tourist Information Centre. Turn right into the small road – it looks like a cul-de-sac  with lots of parked cars – with the Old Fire Engine House restaurant on your left. Carry on into the corner (Cathedral and Palace Green in sight dead ahead) and turn right into a one way lane, which is Church Street.  The entrance to the Recital Hall & Hayward Theatre is on the left at the end of this lane just before you come to the T-junction with Silver Street.  Please note that there is no parking in the grounds of the Hayward and Recital Hall unless you are disabled or have made special arrangements. You can, however, park in The Gallery (the street that passes the front of the Cathedral) or in Barton Road car park (also known as the cathedral car park) & walk through. Note that the School gates in The Gallery are often locked in the evenings and at weekends so assume entry via Church Lane.


Morbey Hall, Kings School (and Junior Music Room) Junior School is situated in Barton Rd, opposite the Barton Rd Car Park. PLEASE NOTE that there is now a one-way system in operation, so enter via the driveway nearest to the Cathedral (near the mini-roundabout) and then follow the road all the way round to the furthest car park. Enter via main school doors, up a few steps in lobby and turn right down a very long corridor and the hall is at the far end.
