Venue Description

“A splendid palace built by a smuggler” Gunsgreen House is an exciting visitor attraction loved by all ages. A must see in the town of Eyemouth in the Scottish Borders. Built in 1753 by local smuggler John Nisbet, and of John Adam design, the architecture of Gunsgreen House includes secret hiding places where smuggled goods were kept. Visit Gunsgreen and see the amazing ‘tea chute’- the only of its kind, where smuggled tea was hidden from prying eyes. Kids love Gunsgreen, dressing as smugglers they can complete the smuggling and rat trails, becoming a certified smuggler.


Our disabled access is not the most straightforward unfortunately, purely due to the nature of this being an old historic house. The entrance level of the house is from ground level on the harbourside (from which their is ramped access from the car park), after this their is ground level entry to the next floor via an outdoor ramp, and then lift access to the floor above. Our staff are very happy to assist.
