Short videos filmed at Georgian locations

Here's a list of some short videos on a Georgian theme.

Instagram (between 6 and 15 seconds long)

The room in Cotehele, Cornwall, where George III and Queen Charlotte took breakfast in 1789. Did they sit on the embroidered cushions?

(Rachel says: Sadly, no. The royals sat on separate chairs which  later had to be removed as they were getting damaged from too many people sitting on them!) Click to view the video.
