Because I’ve read a lot of novels set in the 18th century, there was nothing new I learned by visiting. The guides were all extremely kind, but it just was mediocre. At £10+ a person, I felt it was too expensive for what I experienced....More

Dear Mary, I'm sorry to read that you didn't learn very much from your visit. It is very difficult to pitch a social history museum in a World Heritage Site setting to every kind of audience who comes to it. As you rightly said, those...More

Expensive viewing of a small portion of the house which didn’t really give you a feel of the house. Took all of 20 minutes to walk round

Staff were friendly and helpful and described the Victorian set up and lifestyle. But the rooms looked similar and were roped off. Spent probably 30 minutes not really good value for the entry price. Been to similar places. Probably a case of what you see...More

Having completed a free guided tour with Gary we returned to this house to learn more about life in Georgian times. It is laid out exactly as it would have been during that era. There are information sheets in each room which are very informative.

A lovely, interesting Georgian house brought to life by members of staff in every room talking to visitors about the house, its rooms and Georgian life in general. They engaged well with the public and had very interesting things to say.
