You really get the feel of what it would have been like in those days. The Docents are helpful and knowledgeable.

An excellent 18th century town house. All laid out as it would have been in late 18th/early 19th century. Room displays really well done - excellent and helpful staff. Highly recommended

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
