The Georgian House, Edinburgh

Last weekend, I took a very quick trip to Edinburgh for a lovely Regency Ball that was held in the city's Assembly Rooms. The day after, my friends and I had a few hours to spare before our flights so we took in a couple of the city's highlights. Our first stop was The Georgian House, a wonderful georgian townhouse owned by the National Trust for Scotland.

A tea table with a tea draw!! I had never seen anything like it. Apparently tea tables usually come in pairs with a games table. 

In each room there was a little mouse dressed in edwardian-esque clothes. I'm am pretty sure they were there for children to find, but they were too adorable to resist so I had to take a photo of each one! :)

A gorgeous tea caddy in the Parlour

A rather rubbish photo of another gorgeous one

Decorated with tiny rolls of paper!


The Drawing Room

The beautiful bed in the master bedroom.

The little pockets on the headboard are pocket watch holders! They were meant to keep them warm and upright so that they kept accurate time.



The Dining Room

This is a little silver contraption to keep you melted cheese on toast warm, whilst transporting if from the kitchen to the dining room!!





Mouse maid in the kitchen :)











The Butler's room




It was a fabulous house with very jolly and knowledgeable staff, and definitely worth a visit!!

  1. Such a beautiful Georgian home, thank you for sharing so many photos! The first tea caddy is really precious - if only modern items could be so beautiful again...
