  • This is the information center which is based in the Oliver Cromwell family home. There is a small fee to enter the exhibition. They have tried to recreate the home as it would have been then. A small bit of history too.
  • Beautiful building, well maintained in its historial state... It's full of interesting things and the dress up is a big hit with the little ones - however it doesn't take very long to get around, so plan other things to fill the rest of the day...
  • It's a very good Escape Room, well set and a nice challenge. Staff were very pleasant and helpful.
  • Great little find in Ely, the once home of Oliver Cromwell. Combines as Tourist Information centre, so don't miss the opportunity to visit.
  • I went 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 😃
