33 Ely Place, London, EC1

Holborn, London EC1N 6TD

Set within one of London’s few remaining private roads, Ely Place is a traffic-free oasis of calm in the commercial heart of London. The land is the former site of Ely Palace; a grand inner-city mansion which is mentioned in Shakespeare’s Richard II and hosted King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon for a five day feast in 1531.

The freehold building at 33 Ely Place was built in 1772 and now forms The Estates and Agency Group’s London headquarters. Its Regency architecture – along with that of the rest of the road – is well preserved, and the street is also home to the 13th Century St Etheldreda’s Church, one of London’s oldest buildings.
