“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2015

We enjoyed a walk around this house during our visit to Edinburgh and we would really recommend it! The house has been decorated as it would have been in Georgian times and there are helpful and knowledgeable guides to help you learn more. The kitchens were fascinating! Definately worth a visit.

This was a superb insight to the Georgian Period. The house is magnificent and the guides, all volunteers, were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

“A Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2015

Having been to the No1 house in Bath, we expected a similar experience. This, however, far surpassed it.
The house itself is presented so well, but it is the staff who made the visit so enjoyable. Their enthusiasm to share the history of not only the house, but Georgian life, was addictive.
We stared by trying on costumes...not bad for 60+ year olds. As we continued the tour each guide was keen to talk to us. They engaged us at each stage and we were drawn into the lifestyle of all those who might have lived, or worked there.
We cannot praise the guides highly enough and recommend this visit.
Put it on your wish list.

“Rainy day outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2015

We visited here one rainy morning in July. All of the volunteers at this National Trust building were enthusiastic and informative. In each room a volunteer told us something different about the history and the occupants of the building. There were also a rail of dressing up clothes to try on, this amused us!
