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. There is also a new timeline and family tree to provide more engaging content about this complex man who killed a King but refused the crown. Visitors 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. Or try our new augmented reality trail - The Cromwell Quest, perfect for families. Search the rooms of this historic building looking for seven lost coins from the English Civil War. You will need to find them all and make the link to solve the riddle of where the rest of the treasure is located. Great family fun for adults and children and just £3 per group
