It was very interesting to look at all the different items in the house. The hostess gave us a very brief history of the church. She was available to ask questions, I am sure if she had walked... more »
it's a great place with Rich history. many generations of the same family lived there and you can feel the changes in their life with time and how this change has impacted the house itself. there are many events taking place in this building. you can come for tea party or a fundraiser event. you will enjoy it if you like history. you can take some amazing pictures inside and outside the building with the styles of the 18th century don't forget to get dressed properly. we have visited the place on Canada day.
I love this place. It has an unassuming exterior, but the inside is breathtaking. A real gem in our city. The house is like stepping back in time. Each room is packed full of old artifacts, interesting artwork and local/international history. It's worth going at different time of year as they decorate differently and host special events.
Booked delicious full tea on the lawns of beautiful grounds. Interesting house, with a lot of history. Fun visit.
Must see in London. Actually, it might be the only good thing about that city that usually looks like trash more than anything else. This place has very beautiful gardens well taken care of and a magnolia that is 200yo!
Extremely interesting and well preserved. Love the history behind it too.
