If you ever get the chance to visit Oliver Cromwells house don't pass. You'll love looking round this incredible historic residence and for lovers of English History - if you've not already been there go ASAP. Exceptional.

This was our first Escape Room but certainly won't be the last! Our host was perfect - he set the scene brilliantly, was very knowledgeable but never patronising and had a marvellous sense of humour, very tongue-in-cheek. Some of the clues and puzzles were a...More

Not very big but it is a must to see and you do get a discount on English Heritage you get an audio tour phone like thing and lots of information to listen to pictures but no flash

I loved visiting this museum. Oliver Cromwell lived here with his family for 10 years. The rooms are set up as period rooms that you can walk through with free, self-guided audio tour which is very well done. You could sit down in most of...More

this tour can last an hour or you can stay in for a lot longer. It is so informative with the audio guide and there is so much to see/dress up in/ play with and will occupy children and adults alike. I thought the roundhead...More

Interesting place in pleasant location. Difficult decision as to whether of that period I would have supported the King or the Parliamentarians. Most probably the latter. Or should I leave politics out of this review?

We live in Ely and although we had been in the tourist information office at the front of Oliver Cromwell House we had never been in. When we did it was well worth the visit. We wandered round and learned alot about Oliver Cromwell that...More

Takes about 2 hours if you take your time. It's a self guided tour around the house and reasonably priced. Great points to note and great labelled exhibitions on the way around. There is stairs involved so not great for the elderly who are unsure...More

Sorry for the late reply... You'd be fine with the downstairs of the house as far as I can remember, but I'm pretty sure there was no wheelchair access to the upper area... Probably best if you contact them to make sure... More
