We like to organise weekly activities to help our students to discover Scottish culture. Yesterday a group of students went to the Georgian House. Situated in the historic Charlotte Square, the Georgian House provides a glimpse into 18th century life in the New Town.


The Georgian House is part of Robert Adam’s masterpiece of urban design, Charlotte Square. It dates back to 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.
