Elizabeth Gaskell’s House
Situated just 1 mile outside of Manchester City Centre, sits the former home of Manchester’s most famous Victorian writer, Elizabeth Gaskell. The House opened to the public in 2014 after a considerable amount of restoration work made possible by the National Heritage Lottery Fund. The Regency style villa exterior is one of the few surviving houses of this style in Manchester.
This beautifully restored house now offers a number of stunning Victorian interiors on the ground floor, including a Morning Room, Study, Dining Room and Drawing Room. Other spaces available for use include an Attic, Stairways, and a basement level where the Servants Hall is located.
Elizabeth Gaskell’s House is fully accessible and can be used as a location for films, TV, commercials, and editorial photoshoots. The House is available for filming requests on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Other days may be considered on request.
