Pickford's House
Pickford's House
Pickford's House Museum of Georgian Life and Costume is a time capsule; a fine Georgian town house built by architect Joseph Pickford in 1770 and preserved as it would have looked in the early 19th century. The ground floor features displays of Georgian and Victorian costumes, and the "below stairs" rooms have been carefully restored to give a vivid picture of life behind the scenes. The servant's bedroom on the top floor contrasts with Pickford's own chambers, and visitors can explore the restored formal garens at the rear of the house as well as a scented garden.
There are a changing program of exhibits telling the tale of Pickford's career, costume and textiles, and the Friar's Gate area. In addition, a regular schedule of educational events lets the younger generation experience what life was like in Georgian times.
