Carlyle’s House has been preserved to retain the look and atmosphere of writer and historian Thomas Carlyle. Every room in the house has been immaculately maintained since his death in 1881, still containing his books, original furniture and pictures that reflect the famous writers that moved within these four walls during Victorian times, which included illustrious names such Dickens, Tennyson, Elliot and Chopin.
Key features include the parlour, Carlyle’s sound-proof attic study and the kitchen which still retains all of its original fittings. The small walled garden found at the rear of the house was where Thomas and his wife Jane grew vegetables and herbs, and was one of the writers’ favourite places to relax and unwind.
