This was definitely one of the highlights of our Jersey trip. It's a restored Georgian house in the centre of St Helier, and very evocative of that time. When you see how the building had been allowed to deteriorate, it's an amazing feat of restoration. The guides (volunteers) are really knowledgeable and friendly (hard to find an Islander who is not friendly!) and happy to explain the history of the house and of Jersey. Because it is staffed by volunteers, opening hours are limited, so make sure you see it when it is open!

Totally restored house. Downstairs set at 1815 and staff in costume to tell you the history. Lady in the kitchen was excellent.

Early September, and we were the only visitors. As a result, the lovely receptionist and "cook" shared their knowledge with us in very great detail.

Bought for £1, this attractive Georgian property has been restored to its former glory. Attention to detail is impressive and the added "horrible history" facts and clues to a certain children's favourite character, mean this history lesson appeals to youngsters as well as the older generation. The volunteers are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, answering questions about the property happily. A very interesting way to spend an hour or so, especially if the weather is not being very kind!

Loved how they incorporated social distancing and mask wearing by creating the story of a small pox outbreak. The staff we're brilliant and played there parts wonderfully. This house is well worth the visit. 😊
