Georgian House (NTS)
The Georgian House is part of Robert Adam's masterpiece of urban design, Charlotte Square. It dates from 1796, when those who could afford it began to escape from the cramped, squalid conditions of Edinburgh's Old Town to settle in the fashionable New Town. The house's beautiful china, shining silver, exquisite paintings and furniture all reflect the domestic surroundings and social conditions of the times. It is worth comparing this example of 18th-century New Town architecture with Gladstone's Land, a typical 17th-century house of Edinburgh's Old Town.Video programme and gift shop.
