History & heritage

16 New Street Georgian House Museum

16 New Street is a magnificently restored townhouse in the centre of St. Helier where you can explore life in fashionable Jersey during the Georgian era. With authentic sights and sounds, you will be transported to a time of elegance when gentlemen smoked clay pipes and the threat of French invasion was always a hot topic of conversation.

  • Seasonal opening
  • Free for children

More Information

Rescued from ruin by the National Trust for Jersey, 16 New Street has been decorated and furnished just as it might have been during the period 1800 - 1815 when the building was occupied by the Journeaux family. The rooms feature historic 18th and 19th century furniture, pictures and objects that reveal the lifestyle of St. Helier's fashionable residents. Downstairs in the Georgian kitchen, visitors can enjoy a presentation about Georgian dining with Louisa, the Cook/ Housekeeper, with food to taste.
