The Row Houses are well worth a visit. In both houses the staff were brilliant. Such a wealth of information and they were happy to take the time to answer questions and make your trip a memorable one. I would go back again anytime.

As one of the major tourist attractions in the town, was rather underwhelmed.. The enterance fee covers this attraction, and the Merchants house across the path... Both had not much to see in them, mainly parts of houses that had been collected from bomb damaged...More
