Ely Cathedral will be shut next week, as filming takes place for a brand new Netflix drama.

It's called The Crown, and stars Doctor Who's Matt Smith and Wolf Hall actress Claire Foy.

The drama is about the UK after the second world war - told from the perspective of the Queen and her prime ministers.

The cathedral will be shut next Monday to Thursday (17th-20th August).
