Lawrence House, Launceston, is a fine Georgian house built in 1753, located in a street which John Betjeman described as ‘having the most perfect collection of 18th Century townhouses in Cornwall’. It is owned by the National Trust and leased to Launceston Town Council, who use it to house the town museum, and as a civic centre.
For those less mobile, there are albums of our first floor and basement exhibits which you can enjoy in Room 5 on the ground floor so that you won’t miss a thing.
Admission is free but donations, which support the work of the museum, would be appreciated. Disabled access to the ground floor only ( 6 rooms ).
