Lovely little house with information about Queen Mary's visit to Jedburgh and some background history of her life. Very interesting. Only took about half an hour to 45 mins to complete but very enjoyable. Would recommend and has free entry (although there is a donation box at the end)

Very surprised this is free entry, it was fascinating and I learned a lot about the history of both Scotland and England. The building is lovely and is located in a pretty garden. Only down side were spiral staicases

It was good to go through Mary a Queen of Scots House in Jedburgh. You just give a donation to have a look. A bonus. Lots to read and good pictures and photos in all the rooms. The gardens are a picture too.

It was free to enter and we chose to pay 50p for a very informative audio guide! Well worth the money! Full descriptions and displays well presented .the lady who was... More

You can't visit Jedburgh and not see the house. It's changed alot and you can see it in the walls with bits changed. Interesting things to read and see inside. No I wouldn't go again.

I have always had interest in the Tudor era and I wasn't disappointed in this house.Winding staircase and decor like it was still her house. The artefacts for you to see are amazing. Her death mask looks like a childs, people were only tiny in those days. The house feels sad, in mourning still. It also has a happy feel.... More

We found this place extremely interesting. Was full of old antiques and tapestries from the time queen Mary stayed. Lots of information about her life. Steep stairs to climb, shop on ground level.

Down a side street from the Main Street in Jedburgh you find this treasure. The lady on the desk was fantastic and a credit to the whole experience. The house is so clean and yet holds the era of Mary and you get the feel for Tudor times. Will definitely visit again.

I'd never given much thought to Mary Queen of Scots, but the visit, which was free, but with a small contribution for the excellent audio guide, enlightened me. If you are in Jedburgh, it is a must visit.
