Oliver Cromwell's House, Cambridgeshire

Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England, lived in Ely for 10 years. Today the House, the only surviving former Cromwell residence other than Hampton Court, has been recreated to show how his family would have lived in the mid 17th Century.

Oliver Cromwell's House hosts a range of fun 'hands on' activities for the whole family. Follow the children's trail around the House with clues and riddles, practise your medieval handwriting, have a go at dressing up in 17th Century costumes or discover the toys of those days. Visit on Event Days to meet real characters and take part in the special activities!
