    An Excellent insight into the life and times of Oliver Cromwell, The entry ticket is £4.90, which I thought was well worth it. There is an audio tour of the house included in the ticket price or you c...  more »

    Ok so we didn't go in but it's worth a photo opportunity outside as it's very picturesque and only a stones throw from the cathedral  more »

  • Obviously the size of this attraction is essentially the size of a house, so expect it to be short and sweet. There's an audio tour and some interesting facts but it wasn't overwhelming. I did enjoy the gift shop that is part of the Tourist Information Centre.
  • I been there with my son(5 years old) and we both love it. Great idea with the phones -speaker to describe to you all the history there. We loved the game clues to find... A bit scared by the bedroom hunted 😃
  • It is just a house decorated with information boards, figures, prompts, but they charge you for about £6 or even more. Staff are friendly, but still, it's not reason to charge that much for a house tour. £6, you can tour Le Louvre.
  • Great place with some great history, small but has a lot to offer. We have been a few times, as well as taking part in a great escape room which was a good puzzle solving game for groups, locked in a room for an hour with clues to finding a key to escape, would highly recommend both.
  • Good historic venue and excellent story telling.
