visit a georgian house for yourself
Georgian - Dennis Severs house
The ten rooms of this original Huguenot house have been decorated to recreate snapshots of life in Spitalfields between 1724 and 1914.
An escorted tour takes you through the cellar, kitchen, dining room, smoking room and upstairs to the bedrooms. With hearth and candles burning, smells lingering and objects scattered apparently haphazardly, it feels as though the inhabitants had deserted the rooms only moments before. The Dennis Severs House tour is unsuitable for children as tours are conducted in silence

Georgian - Halliwell's House Museum
The Museum is situated in the very atmospheric Halliwell's Close. Salkirk. The narrow, cobbled lane with outhouses, which was formerly gas-lit and was typical of many such closes in Selkirk, has a compelling history dating back over 400 years.
The museum building itself dates from the end of the 18th century and is part of what is probably the oldest surviving row of dwellings in the historic town of Selkirk.

Kelmscott House Home of William Morris
The summer home of William Morris, Kelmscott Manor is a Grade I listed farmhouse, built around 1600 adjacent to the River Thames.
William Morris chose it as his summer home, signing a joint lease with the Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti in the summer of 1871. Morris loved the house as a work of true craftsmanship, totally unspoilt and unaltered, and in harmony with the village and the surrounding countryside. He considered it so natural in its setting as to be almost organic, it looked to him as if it had "grown up out of the soil". Its beautiful gardens, with barns, dovecote, a meadow and stream, provided a constant source of inspiration.
