The Oliver Cromwell building is located off St. Mary's Street in Ely and has an entrance fee. Lots of history connected to this house and you walk from room to room. Audio guide available.

I always thought Oliver Cromwell was a bit of a baby, but seemingly not so much. The facts come at you thick and fast on the tour so listen carefully. I thought the antiquities were very good and appropriately displayed. Found the bed chamber a...More

Really interesting place to visit. Small entrance fee. Lots of history. Audio guides given Smalltalk as you enter which sets the scene

Disappointed in the hiuse. The structure is standing, but little of Cromwell is there. Very short on history. Not expensive, but I wouldn't recommend visiting.

The whole visit does not take long but it is worthwhile.The cost of admission is reasonable and the gift shop is good. You can make your own mind up whether Cromwell was a hero or a villain.

This modest farmhouse gives a new perspective on Cromwell and is definitely worth a look. Opportunities for dressing up and displays which should engage children's attention also.

As our family have been members of the English Civil War Society since the 1980's it was a must visit. Lots of interesting items to see and information about his family life

You are introduced to the human Oliver Cromwell the Protector. Pity there are no special rates for seniors. A great exerbition for adults and children. Located in the centre of Ely.

Not particularly big but an interesting visit. It's only a few hundred metres from the cathedral and shouldn't take more than an hour to go round.

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
