    invite them round to/invite them to come up to

    Hello!

    They would invite us round to their house.
    They would invite us to come up to their house.


    Do these sentences have the same meaning?

    Only if their house was on a higher level than yours.

    Re: invite them round to/invite them to come up to

    It would work if the person lived further north in the country than you. I am frequently invited "up" to my friends in Gloucestershire.
