Cromwell was born in Huntingdon and went to school which is now the museum. It is free to go in and the lady on reception had great info on the history of it all.

We chose our hotel so we could visit this Museum. Sadly we found it closed on a Monday morning so our plans were dashed. We will try and fit it in on our next trip South, avoiding Mondays!
