The Georgian House is a must for anyone visiting Bristol. It is just as it was when the occupants walked out all those years ago. It was a merchants house back in the day and has been kept in a good state of repair. It is well worth the visit, but tie it in with other attractions like the red... More

Helpful staff, plenty of info and curiosity. Amazing visit, makes you feel like in the 1786. Is half an hour visit, but free entry. I would suggest a visit when in Bristol

I visited the Georgian House for the first time in over 20 years and things seemed much the same, very carefully maintained. This attraction is free entry and the rooms are accessible over three floors. I would have loved to see the attics where the servants slept. The kitchen is amazing, a must-see! This house tells the history of a... More

This is a little gem to finally visit and a nice insight into Georgian family life. A great activity to do on a rainy day :-)

Delightful museum, with lots of interesting bits - don't miss the cold water plunge pool. An extraordinary feature for a relatively small house. Gives a sense of Georgian life. Note there is no toilet or café. Worth visiting, friendly guides.

Please take time to visit this slice of history and learn a thing or two about the slave trade. The house is well presented offering an insight into history in an pleasant atmosphere.

We were not told by the Tourist Information Office that it closed at 4 so arrived at 3.35. The woman who met us in the hallway was offhand, unwelcoming & unhelpful. We didn't see it & will not be trying again.

Tucked away on a street near the Cabot Tower park. Well worth a visit. Friendly, knowledgeable guides, informative printed information on each room. If you want a peaceful interlude from the higher profile attractions of Bristol, make time for a visit. As good as a National Trust property without the price.
