Babylon Gallery, Waterside, Ely, CB7 4AU. Free Parking at Ship Lane Car Park, 3 mins from Gallery.

Located on the picturesque riverside in Ely, Babylon Arts is an independent arts development charity run by ADEC (Arts Development in East Cambridgeshire). We have an enviable reputation for delivering a high quality, wide ranging programme of visual art, film, live events and significant education and community based projects in Ely and beyond.

Ely is England's second smallest city and the main market town in East Cambridgeshire. We are a short 12 minute train journey from Cambridge and  15 miles north. The Gallery is a 5 minute riverside walk from the station. We are the City’s second most visited attraction second only to Ely Cathedral, welcoming over 25,000 visitors a year. Thanks to Arts Council funding we can now programme live events and art screenings in the gallery alongside our regularly changing programme of exhibitions.

Gift Shop

Our little gift shop in the Gallery is full of gorgeous gifts lovingly made by local artists and craftspeople. Our cards by Green Pebble also feature work from local and regional artists. It's a great way to support both our arts charity and artists.
