Ely railway station serves the city of Ely in Cambridgeshire, England. The station lies on the Fen Line from Cambridge to King's Lynn, which is electrified at 25 kV AC overhead. It is a busy station served by trains running to a variety of destinations including London King's Cross, London Liverpool Street, Liverpool Lime Street, King's Lynn, Stansted Airport, Ipswich, Norwich, Cambridge, Nottingham, Sheffield, Manchester Piccadilly and Birmingham New Street. The station itself was modified substantially in the early 1990s, at the time that electrification was taking place.

Three other non-electrified lines meet at Ely:

*The Breckland Line to Thetford and Norwich diverges from the Fen Line to the north of Ely.

*The line to March and Peterborough also diverges to the north.

*The line from Ipswich joins to the south of Ely station.

Ely station won first prize in the station of the year competition 1987 (medium sized category).
