Tudor Place was a happy surprise. The house and especially the gardens were lovely. Most plants had identification which made it a great garden to stroll through and photograph.

We wondered why we had never toured this home despite going to Georgetown in the 1960s and our daughter again in the 2000s. The answer is that it was a private family-owned residence through the 1980s. In doing so, the estate is in pretty good condition and showcases how life was from the time of Martha Washington's Grand-daughter through the... More

If you're a history buff, you'll want to see it. Arlington and a Tudor Place are like plantation home tours.

Beautiful home and gardens. The tour was very interesting and brought insight to GW history. I could visualize the white house burning and the lengths the family went to keep history alive.

Our Docent Judy provided a wonderfully detailed explaination of the homes architectual features and the facinating history of the house. We could have taken her whole afternoon asking questions. The Home and Garden are a perfect mid point to tour while you're walking the streets of Georgetown enjoying the architecture. Both are notably quiet and abscent of hoardes of tourists.

Tudor Place is a late 18th century mansion in Georgetown Washington, D.C. It was at one time the home to Thomas Peter and his wife Martha Parke Custis a step-granddaughter of George Washington. We took a tour round the house which lasted about 70 minutes and saw some original period furniture and Washington artefacts but generally speaking it was just... More

The house tour is very interesting and the garden is a pretty town garden. The house is furnished with many of George Washington's belongings. A Pierce Arrow (1919 I believe) is in the garage.

What a great tour. A must for history buffs. Our tour guide - Leslie Ossim was great. Very knowledgable. Great collection and a beautiful garden. Not really good for kids

I finally visited Tudor Place over Inaugural Weekend 2013 after years of living in DC (including in Georgetown, so I have no excuse for not visiting sooner!) and passing by the outside of it a million times. A group of friends and I attended a special "Presidential Tea" ceremony there, which featured teas and snacks of types that would/could have... More

The home of Martha and George's granddaughter, and holds most of the Mount Vernon furniture that is not still at Mt Vernon. Set on 6 acres in Georgetown, just half a block from Dumbarton Oaks, the place is a gem, and well done for a house museum. As a preservation and architecture buff, and with a spouse who was the...
