Love him or lothe him there is no doubt that Oliver Cromwell changed the face of history. Nice to see where he lived in a fascinating city.

For such a small venue with only one theme, this is a value-for-money place to learn a lot about Ely's most celebrated son.

I'm very sorry that you clearly did not enjoy your recent visit to Oliver Cromwell's House which also doubles as the Tourist Information Centre. We like to think that we offer value for money and our bespoke audio tour is usually well received.

Worth a visit to this historical attraction which was the home of Oliver Cromwell. Lots of interesting facts about Cromwell and his family and about the happenings of the time.
