Tour of Ashton House
Now that you've had some time to get settled into your rooms and don your Victorian garb, let's begin with a tour of my home. Like most Victorians, we are extremely concerned about what other people think of us so, we have tried to create a home that is fashionably furnished, inviting and comfortable.
As I mentioned earlier, my husband, Laurence, is a physician so we chose to stay in London. With assistance from both our families, we were able to purchase this terraced-house in the "fashionable" West End. It is adjoined to another and is situated at the end of a private road which is blocked off by a gate. As you noticed when you arrived, there is a guard posted at the gate to keep out the "undesirables" (beggars and street vendors). Behind the house, we have a garden and a small yard. We are close to some very nice parks, fashionable shops and theaters.
Above is a "mapping" of our house. We will be visiting several of these rooms individually. To begin, just click on the room you wish to visit.
