We took my dad out for the day, he enjoyed it very much as he lived he Canada. There is maps on the st Lawrence river and Quebec, plus lots more. Lovely old house. Lots of pictures of General worfe. The guide was very good. Not a big house. The grounds are small. Worth a visit. Lots of history.

Gen Wolfe lived here only until he was 11 and there is precious little of him in the place. Many things on display are facsimiles. The mandatory guided tour is endless since the guides must work so hard to make the house interesting and earn the admission price. We could have covered everything of interest in a third of the...

If interested in history or Sir James Wolfe then this is a very worthwhile visit. It is quite a small house (compared to the nearby Chartwell, Ightham Mote or Knole) but all very interesting all the same. The highlight is the kitchen which were cooking some old recipes and some we were able to try. This is a very nice... More

National Trust, charming house with some beautiful pieces dating circa 1759 from the battle of Quebec led by James Wolfe. It was interesting to find out about a bit of history I had never heard before. It's not a huge place and can easily be visited in 1-2hrs. There are also special days during which they make food from the... More

The first property purchased by the National Trust with aid from a Canadian to preserve the home of General James Wolfe. A compact house with superb tour available between 12 noon and 1pm. House stays open but without guided tour from 1pm to 5pm. Exhibition and garden open 11am to 5pm. Coffee and snacks available. We learned so much about... More

We visited modest Quebec house as it was so near to Chartwell House. It was enlightening to learn of James Wolfe , a very young Major a General who took Quebec from the French during the Seven Years War. JW lived in this house until he was about 11 years old before his father moved the family to Greenwich. The... More

Today, we visited Chartwell and Quebec House. The two experiences were so strongly contrasting that I feel compelled to write about them. Chartwell was off the scale naff. Quebec House, because of the volunteers and staff, was simply the most positive and engaging experience we've ever had in a National Trust property. This sets the model of excellence for the...

At present only open at weekends and the museum and souvenir barn is closed for restoration. We took the guided tour first and then wandered around by ourselves. Extremely interesting to me as I have been to the plains of Abraham in Quebec and seen the other side. Guides appeared knowledgeable, friendly and there was one in each room.

It was a lovely house with some of the best and knowledgable volunteers we have met, once the stable works are completed there will be a tearoom but this didn't spoil a lovely visit
