Oliver Cromwell’s House

Visit the former Lord Protector’s family home, the only residence still in existence other than Hampton Court. Following a refurbishment, our House now boasts a completely re-vamped Civil War Exhibition with impressive interactive displays and interpretations. You’ll have the opportunity to try on costumes and try out the games of the time as well as truly experience what life was like on the battlefields during the English Civil War in our new mini encampment. Audio handsets bring the story of the impressive Oliver Cromwell House vividly to life.
