A very interesting house, I really like the symmetry and proportions of Georgian architecture, and it's a treat to be able to see how the first occupants of one of the best addresses in the New Town district of Edinburgh would have lived. The National...More

The wife and I are National Trust members, so this place is covered (8 pounds per person otherwise). Beautiful house, great guides, so I thought it was great. Watch the film first, and then tour 3 floors (we spent about 45 minutes - 1 hour...More

It’s one thing to read about and absolutely another - to observe it with your own eyes. I’ve read practically all of Jane Austen’s novels and I was especially looking forward to visit the Georgian House. And we really enjoyed it: the authentic historic atmosphere,...More

We've been to the dregs of historic Edinburgh (15th century), middle class homes (16-17th century) and now have seen the elegance of the 18th/19th century in this new town Georgian home. Beautifully restored to the period of the Lamont family (1820ish), but the piece de...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
