Oliver Cromwell's House

Oliver Cromwell’s House

Oliver Cromwell, one of the most divisive individuals in British History, spent a decade of his life living in Ely. Visit the former Lord Protector’s family home which has been extensively refurbished. The only residence still in existence other than Hampton Court.


Experience what domestic life would have been like in the 17th Century in a variety of re-created period rooms as well as exhibition detailing the Civil War. Learn more about the complex man who killed a King but refused the crown.


Visit Mrs Cromwell’s kitchen, immerse yourself in the period by dressing up  or playing with the toys of the time. Venture into the Haunted Bedroom if you dare!

Audio handsets bring the story of this impressive House to life as well as the augmented reality trail – The Cromwell Quest.


Guided tours and group visits welcome. Oliver Cromwell’s House also doubles as the Tourist Information Centre for Ely and the Gift Shop has a range of delightful gift ideas as well as souvenirs relating to Cromwell and the area.
