Hinchingbrooke house is a Tudor country house built around an early 13th century nunnery. It was given by Henry VIII to Richard Cromwell in 1538 at the time of the Dissolution. Queen Elizabeth I came here, King James I was a regular visitor and Oliver Cromwell played here as a child. The next owners, the Montagu family, soon to become the Earls of Sandwich, also played an important part in British history and the House remained their ancestral home until the 1960's. For more
