Beautifully restored town house packed with Terry (the chocolate manufacturer) private furniture and clock collection...each room is staffed by a super-friendly and knowledgable volunteers - worth going for the chats with them alone!

Although the museum is not very large, the content is very rich and the displays very interesting. The team of people who explained what each room contained were very helpful and were full of fascinating information about the House. I would recommend this attraction to anyone, it was superb.

A really lovely Georgian house and stewarded by helpful guides (especially the one in the dining room). Beautifully laid out and atmospheric and an oasis away from the other busy (tho' excellent) museums. I will definitely go back.
