Attraction details
Owner description: Discover what a Bristol sugar plantation and slave owner's home might have looked like around 1790. Eleven rooms spread over four floors reveal what life was like above and below stairs, from the kitchen in the basement where servants prepared meals to the elegant formal rooms above.

I had a very disappointed 8 year old who had been looking forward to visiting the Georgian House, she was very upset when we arrived to find out it was not open on a Friday-not good!

I went here reluctantly as I'm not really into museums etc., but my partner wanted to go, and we found it quite interesting. It's free to get in, easy to get to, and the staff are very friendly. It took us about 20 minutes to look around as it's quite small, but you could possibly stretch this to 40-60 minutes if you read all the information etc as you go around. Definitely worth a look since its free of charge

Historically interesting, easy to find (close to Park street) and free. This house gives a good impression of life during the slave trade period - for the non-slaves!

This Georgian House is free entry and the staff were very helpful. The routine is to see the ground floor and then kitchens after that guest rooms and finally top floor. It is only then that you realize that all the wealth came from a slave trader. I think this could have been emphasized more with photos.

House set out as it was in Georgian times, with history and information about the mechant who lived there and his slave Pero. Very interesting and worth a visit.
