A house full with old charm which gives you the picture how was a house of a gentleman in the Georgian time. Everything is kept the same as it was in that time. Not big museum but do not miss it.

citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
