Victorian lounge

The No 7 Castle Hill historic museum is really one of the special gems in Port Elizabeth's tourism crown.  The house is the oldest residential house in Port Elizabeth and completed in about 1829.  The museum is furnished to show what life was like for a English middle-class family in Port Elizabeth in the mid 19th century.  The furniture are mostly early Victorian making the museum a treasure trove for any history buffs out there.


  1. Lovely to look at but I could never get comfy in that room.

  2. Looks just like my Grandmothers house!
    Would love to see it. It could be used as a SA version of Downton Abbey
