TOUR

 

If these walls could talk… Unload the historic cargo of this impressive Georgian building, now the home of Historic England and English Heritage.

 

An impressive Georgian style building with a striking façade built in 1711, 29 Queen Square is packed to the rafters with history.

 

The tour: From the opulent residence of a 18th century slave-merchant in England’s largest slaving port, to a refuge and home for sailors; hear how the stories of this building fit into the broader narrative of this long-lived maritime city.

 

LAST CHANCE TO SEE: Historic England will be moving offices in 2020, making this the last time they are able to offer tours of this venue.

 

Tours run at multiple times on Friday, please book below.
