Lonely Planet review
By St Mary's Green is the attractive half-timbered house where England's only dictator lived with his family from 1636 to 1647, when he was the local tithe collector. From the introductory video, and the audio-guided tour of the living quarters to exhibits on the Civil War, and Cromwell’s posthumous execution, this entertaining museum challenges you to answer one question: was this complex character (who executed a king and fought a bloody Civil War that killed 185,000 people) a hero or a villain? The interactive exhibits keep children (and your inner child) happily occupied throughout.
