As the name suggests, this New Town building, run by the National Trust of Scotland as a public museum, has been carefully restored as a typical Georgian House of the late 18th-early 19th century. This includes furniture, porcelain, silver and glass that reflect the New Town lifestyle of the time. The Georgian House at No. 7 Charlotte Square, is next door to Bute House, the official residence of Scotland’s First Minister. It looks out upon the leafy, green expanse of Charlotte Square Gardens, and is delightfully furnished as it would have been around 1796. It is a fine example of Robert Adam's original masterpiece of urban architecture which now incorporates an audio visual room where programmes describe the history of Edinburgh’s New Town.
