Paranormal Activity at Cromwell’s House

Inside Oliver Cromwells House Ghost Hunt with Haunted Evenings

Previous investigations and employee accounts stack up to an impressive list of paranormal occurrences at Cromwell’s House. Staff often feel uneasy when walking alone through the aptly named “Haunted Bedroom” and it is here where many have felt the presence of someone….. is this Cromwell himself? Light phenomenon have been captured in the Exhibition room and Parlour along with interesting cold spots recorded in the study. parlour and exhibition room. Others have reported sensing a male ghostly figure in the kitchen, possibly that of a servant stood near to the fireplace. Several accounts suggest this location can be extremely active and all guests brave enough to spend a lock down in this famous Cambridgeshire haunted house will be encouraged to take part and hopefully experience for themselves the paranormal activities that others have often experienced.
