    About half an hour by car from Newmarket, Thetford Forest is a place where you can enjoy beautiful nature and if you want sports facilities. Within the forest there is ‘CenterParcs’ if you want to spend more than one day in the area.

    Ely is famous for its Cathedral and the river Great Ouse, which might be of great interest to you if you are thinking about renting a boat and exploring English waterways. There is one interesting detail about the river – in 1944 the boat race between teams of Cambridge and Oxford took place on Great Ouse because at the time it was too risky to have the race on Thames where it takes place every year.
    Ely is a small place, only about 15.000 inhabitants, and the best way to explore it is by walking. You are never far from the main city square and the cathedral is only a short walk away from the river.
    The name of the city comes from ‘eels’ - the history of the city is firmly connected to the trade of eels.

    If you are really in the mood for the club scene a Thursday night would be the best to go as it is "ladies night" and the club is usually fuller. The club has a clever Godfather theme, with murals on the walls. The website claims a 1500 capacity. There are two main areas, the first and largest plays UK Top 40 though it is rarely updated and many songs annoyingly repeat through the night. The lower floor (Pacino's) plays more urban, hip-hop music and though it is smaller than upstairs is still large enough. The bars sell mostly beers and straight shots, though a popular combination is a vodka Red Bull where you recieve a can of Red Bull and a glass of vodka on ice. Pour the Red Bull into the glass and you get a combination that tastes something like cough syurp. Cocktails can be bought in the lounge, but you have to purchase a VIP bracelet (3 pounds) to enter and cannot leave the room with your drink.
    Like I said earlier, if you are in the area and desparate for some dancing stop by once. I certianly don't reccomend sequential visits as the playlist becomes too predictable and there are more people who stand and watch than seriously dance.

    Dress Code: Casual, they say "no sneakers(trainers)" but usually don't fuss about it. Women are asked not to wear open toed shoes, but if you're dressed to dance the bouncers are more preoccupied with your boobs than your shoes. Show up early enough and they'll simply wave you in. Stop by the Orange House pub around the corner before the club opens and chances are you will get a ticket for free admission.
