Learn about the Battle of Quebec in the childhood home of General James Wolfe who led Britain to victory.
Originally built in the 16th century and called Spiers, the house was the birthplace of General James Wolfe and renamed after the Battle of Quebec in 1759. An exhibition explores his life and the dramatic battle that won America for Britain but cost him his life. Visitors can see the house as it appeared in the 1730s when the Wolfe family lived here. There’s an invitation to take a nap on a replica 18th-century bed or to sample Mrs Wolfe’s ‘cure for consumption’ in the kitchen. Refreshments are available in the café and visitors can relax in the 18th-century garden.
