Taylor's Cottage

Visit Us

Take some time to visit historic Guildford, a National Trust historic town, and the Heritage Precinct. We are located in the heart of Guildford opposite Stirling Square.

The Colonial Gaol has recently undergone a substantial renovation and visitors can appreciate this wonderful colonial building and see how it was used.

Taylor’s Cottage dates from the 1860s and was home to ex-convict Edward Taylor and his extensive family in the 1880s. See how family life revolved around the fireplace and the dining table, and find out more about how chores were done.

Open Tues – Sat 10am – 2pm (last tour 1.30pm).

We look forward to welcoming you!
