'When was my house built?' is a question many of us wonder.

At the House History Show we will help you m​​​​aster the skills you need to turn back time and reveal the history of a house inside and out. The online event will feature the UK’s leading house historians who will be sharing their expertise to help you learn how to research and tell the story of a home.

Urban mansion or rural cottage, stately home, tenement, or Victorian terrace – the knowledge you’ll gain at The House History Show and summer lecture series will enable you to research a home, its interior, origins, development, locality and the lives of the people who once lived there across centuries.
