This was an interesting house to visit. The docents at the house were prepared to be in role when you moved to each room.

They have done a great job with this museum, starts with a little film to get you into the mood and a setan chair in the first room gives you a flavour of the times. Every room had someone there to chat to you and...More

I walked around the exterior and the large green space in the front of the complex. There are many private residents living in the complex. You can take a tour of the inside, or you can walk around the gardens.

This house is very well presented as a Georgian gentleman’s residence. The volunteer room stewards were friendly and knowledgeable. Recommended.

We spent about an hour walking around the house which I found rather an average experience, aside from some dressing up clothes there is little in the was of interactive experiences. What was far better was the knowledge and enthusiasm of the ladies in each...More

An interesting attraction, very well renovated and with friendly and informative guides. Amazing to think that only 50 years ago it was used for university students accommodation. Much attention to detail but the highlight was learning about the turnspit dog in the servants hall.

Hello SKM0405, I hope they told you that occasionally a turnspit dog was taken to church on a Sunday - to keep the ladies' feet warm!

Dear Hodgson1055, Hopefully you found some 'calm' here in No. 1 after the magical but packed-out Christmas market! I'm glad you enjoyed the visit. But I just wanted to share that our Christmas dressing is authentic to the late 18th century, when people were still...More
