This home was not as fancy as the other 3 we visited during our trip to Charleston. The Church Street area is very cool and the house was great as was our guide. There were many interesting pieces of furniture and other household items.

Lots of antiques to enjoy and the gardens were lovely. The slave's quarters were helpful in learning more about them and that era in general. If you like history, you'll enjoy this tour.

We truly enjoyed our tour of the Heyward- Washington House. It was not expensive and well worth the stop. Very interesting pieces displayed throughout, by the Charleston museum. The tour guide was very sweet and knowledgeable when asked questions.

Did not enjoy this home tour, it was Monday morning and raining outside, so this felt like the good thing to do. The female guide I thought did a terrible job, she spoke way to fast and came across as totally disinterested. The only thing...More

Full of fine antiques and neat that Washington rented it for his visit to Charleston. Lots of special pieces inside. Parking on the street by the house very possible, 2 hour limit is plenty. Nice garden in back.

The outside grounds are self-guided and took approximately 30 min. The guided tour of the home was about an hour.
