Ely Cathedral is to become the latest Cathedral to launch it's own app - allowing visitors to navigate their way round the 900-year-old site.

The App, which is available for download on most smartphones and tablets, will tell users about the history of the site, provide tour routes and information about the architecture and iconic stained glass windows.

The app was funded by The Friends of Ely Cathedral, and spearheaded by York University's Department for Christianity and Culture.

It's the second Cathedral in our region to launch it's own app, following Norwich Cathedral who launched their app in 2014.
