Nestled on shady Queen Street, The Elliott House Inn is your gateway to the charms of Historic Charleston.
The Battery and its Historic Homes
From our Historic District Hotel in Charleston, stroll down Meeting Street through the iconic South of Broad neighborhoods to the famous White Point Gardens, or The Battery as it is colloquially known. Pass the “Four Corners of Law”- Charleston City Hall, St. Michael’s Church, the old US Post Office and the Charleston County Courthouse – at the corner of Meeting Street and Broad Street. Continue past immaculately preserved private homes and house museums until you reach The Battery with its bandstand, monuments and artillery from the Civil War overlooking Charleston Harbor where the Ashley and Cooper Rivers join to make the Atlantic Ocean – or so locals say.
King Street Shopping and Antique District
A step away from our Charleston Bed and Breakfast is where Queen Street crosses Charleston’s famous King Street shopping district. From this corner browse centuries of American, European and world antiques from multiple dealers in the famed antiques district. Venture north to shop Charleston’s celebrated fashion boutiques from Market Street to Calhoun Street. North of Calhoun Street, explore the hip and up-and-coming Upper King district for shopping, galleries and nightlife.
The Old City Market
The Charleston City Market is a revitalized symbol of Charleston. Wander past hundreds of vendors selling their wares from Charleston souvenirs to handmade works of art. Stop and watch local artisans craft their celebrated Sweetgrass baskets, a unique Charleston art form.
Charleston Galleries and Museums
Explore Charleston’s vibrant arts community at its galleries and museums. Visit the Gibbes Museum of Art, at the corner of Meeting and Queen Streets, to see artwork and thought-provoking exhibits inspired by the Charleston area. Explore Charleston’s many galleries on Broad Street and the surrounding areas for local and up-and-coming artists.
