The Georgian House is an 18th-century townhouse located on the historic Charlotte Square within Edinburgh’s New Town. The House, which is in the care of the National Trust for Scotland, dates back to 1796.
The historic House has been restored to reflect the status of wealthy New Town residents during the period, displaying beautiful porcelain and silver pieces, and fine furniture, as well as paintings by leading 18th century Scottish artists such as Sir Henry Raeburn, Allan Ramsay and Alexander Nasmyth. Additionally, visitors have the opportunity to explore the servants’ quarters in the basement, including a fully equipped kitchen and scullery.
Visitors have the opportunity to explore the Georgian House as part of a tour or self-guided. A short film and informational touch-screen computers enable visitors to learn more about historic life in Edinburgh’s New Town during their visit. Guides are readily available onsite to answer any questions.
