Elizabeth Gaskell House
Using 360-degree photography our expert guides will bring Manchester’s literary heritage to life via an online tour of Elizabeth Gaskell’s House.
From the Morning Room and Study, to the Drawing and Dining Rooms, you’ll learn about Elizabeth’s family life; how William, her husband, supported her and how her life in Manchester influenced the books she wrote and made her famous throughout the world.
Find out about the people who visited the House, including the notoriously shy Charlotte Bronte, and the tumultuous relationship Elizabeth had with her publisher Charles Dickens. Your tour will also include stories about how the House was restored and why certain furnishing and decor was chosen.
This tour is a must for literary fans!
“We were very impressed with the guides’ knowledge of Elizabeth and her family which brought the house to life. “
This interactive room by room tour will last approx. 1 hour and is limited to 20 people to give time for questions.
