  • What an amazing place, full of lovely items small and large. It also has a vintage comic book shop on the top floor. There are small pieces and large pieces of furniture,as well as collectables, old tools , jewellery and much more . If you like second hand vintage items, spend some time here.
  • Massive stock laid out across several floors. A real Alladin's cave.
  • Simply the best antiques shop in Cambridgeshire and, possibly, the UK. Any time I visit Ely, I spend at least an hour wandering the four vast floors of every type of antique and vintage product; from the normal (glassware, furniture, vases) to lesser found items (such as very old or rare issues of comics, British magazines and football programmes). As hopefully the photos demonstrate, it's a place that rewards those that spend time looking carefully. Even better, the prices seem reasonable enough - I always find something charming that I buy and the price is rarely 'wow I didn't expect it to be that much'. If you're in the Cambridgeshire area and like vintage or antique items, I urge you to come to Ely and visit Waterside Antiques - it won't disappoint.
  • Spent hours here with my parents. Such a treasure trove. Without a doubt if I needed some furniture or statement pieces I would come back (visiting for the weekend from London)
  • Good range of quality items, not cheap but nice place. Friendly staff, good discounts.
