  • As a history buff, I was looking forward to visiting here and I wasn't disappointed. It was reasonably priced and they had some very interesting displays. They gave some good details about Oliver Crom...  read more »
  • This is a well presented history offering different opinions to think about. Watch out for misleading web sites - the museum is open 7 days a week except Christmas. 
  • If you are interested in learning about Oliver Cromwell, this house is definitely worth a visit, even though he only lived there a short time. Most interesting to me was I thought I knew a lot about h...  read more »
  • I attempted to visit the house an hour before scheduled closing time only to be told that as there was currently a tour in progress I could not visit the house. As I had been told on an earlier occasion that the visits were self guided I asked to be able to take myself around. I was told that there were too many visitors already in the house so I could not see it. As I was alone I would have thought my presence would not have significantly affected those already present.The staff were unhelpful and rather dismissive offering no apology and suggesting that I return the next day. The previous day we had enquired about possible bus trips around Ely and were told that there was basically nothing unless we wanted to take a taxi somewhere. In the event we took the train to King's Lynn and had a lovely day out. Perhaps the staff at the tourist office could have suggested that as an alternative as surely that is what they are there for. I was unimpressed with the attitude of the staff who ought to have been much more helpful and accommodating. Ely is a delightful town not best served by the tourist office staff.
  • Cool hospital place; audio guides included in admissions cost. Weird "haunted bedroom": may be a bit scary for the little ones.
  • Very interesting visit.
  • Fun but quick
  • Cromwell's chair is good :) I liked local beer
