Fodor's Review

This half-timber medieval building stands in the shadows of Ely Cathedral. During the 10 years he lived here, Cromwell (1599–1658) was leading the rebellious Roundheads in their eventually victorious struggle against King Charles I in the English Civil War. The house contains an exhibition about its controversial former occupant, who was Britain's Lord Protector from 1653 to 1658. It's also the site of Ely's tourist information center.
