Nice location, overlooking the beautiful Charlotte Square. The Georgian House is a great place to spend some time. The rooms are lovely, the Guides very enthusiastic and a good lesson in social history. Just a short walk from Princess Street.

Really enjoyed seeing how the "upper crust" lived in Georgian period. Stark contrast to Mary's close. Guides n every room were informative and quite friendly. Worth the admission price

Hardly a hidden gem given this has been a National Trust For Scotland property since the late 1970s but very few other visitors on the wet Saturday that we visited. Remarkably friendly relaxed atmosphere from the moment we arrived. All the room guides were friendly,...More

I am not a great fan of National Trust - too expensive and elitist, BUT this house was a joy. The guides were absolutely brilliant - so helpful and knowledgeable. Many thanks.

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