  • Franklin house is a great historical building from 1838. It gives a great insight into life at that time. The 2 oak trees in the garden around the property are trees of historical significance and harks back to 1830s when they were planted. They still drop acorn on the unwary! The property is a walk back into time. Great experience and a must see in Launceston. The national trust has done a great job of maintaining the property.
  • This place is amazing & beautiful,the house inside is lovely. Very interesting & the gardens are devine.Highly recommended.
