If you've ever taken a walk down Rodney Street in Liverpool and seen a distinctive green front door then you've probably walked past Hardmans' House and not realised the amazing history behind this Georgian terraced house.
It was once the home of renowned 1950s photographer Edward Chambré Hardman and his wife Margaret and you can take a guided tour of the photography studio that encompassed their life's work and their humble living quarters.
The National Trust tours, which have to be pre-booked, cover all four floors of the house - that's a lot of steps to climb so perhaps this is best for older children with an interest in history and photography.
There's also a children's quiz which you can pick up from reception and help Bick the dog on his adventure. There are many mysteries at the house so expect cryptic clues, rhyming riddles and curious questions.
Later enjoy a cup of tea in the little walled 1950s garden with its bird bath, stone bench and flowers planted by our volunteers. Keep an eye out for the oldest rose bush in the garden from the Hardmans' time.
