Directions to Georgian House
The Georgian House is one of Bristol's hidden gems that is often missed by visitors.
Built in 1790 for a sugar merchant, John Pinney, the house is relatively simple when you consider his wealth - estimated to be £340,000 on his death - about £17million in todays terms! The rooms are decorated and furnished as they would have been during Pinney's time. Upstairs you receive a fascinating insight into Pinney's character and lifestyle - the cold water plunge pool is not likely to be a selling point for a property these days! The crowning glory for us is the kitchen area, reflecting how life must have been for the servants downstairs. You can really imagine the hustle and bustle as the servants rushed to meet the demands from upstairs.
We highly recommend a visit to this beautifully maintained house.
The Georgian House is open from Easter until end of October on selected days. Please click on the website for details of opening times.
Please note that there is no lift in this property and as the exhibits are on several floors it may not be suitable for those who have mobility problems.
