The house on Guinea Street, which is named after the Guinea Coast in West Africa, has four bedrooms, two ensuite bathrooms, a basement, kitchen, study, dining room and living room.

Described by estate agents Chappell & Matthews, which is selling the property, as “brimming with character” and “one of Bristol’s most historically significant homes”, the house also has a raised decking area, dressing room within the master bedroom and original features including fireplaces, shutters and panelling.

Talking about choosing the house for A House Through Time, Olusoga said: “We felt it was really important that if we were going to bring A House Through Time to Bristol, we find an 18th century house.

“But the house we found is extraordinary and the story of Bristol we are able to tell through it is incredibly rich and varied.”
