This home offers a fantastic, well-preserved view into the past. The family that owned the home traveled extensively so there are interesting artifacts not only from the local area but around the world. At busier times the individual rooms in the house can be a...More

Been visiting since childhood. Only place I have seen in my travels that is a fully-furnished, complete antique home. Also you pay by donation, and it is in a central yet beautiful location.

I visited the Eldon house yesterday as I was in London. They really take great care of the place. The guide was informative about the history and I really like the antique wallpaper.

Went to catch a live theatrical event here (in the past) and had a really great time touring through the house during a great performance. Will definitely be back for other activities.
