Turner's House Trust
Sandycombe Lodge (Turner’s House) was built by 1813 to the designs of England’s great landscape painter, J.M.W. Turner; working here as his own architect to create a quiet retreat for himself, away from the pressures of the London art world. It also provided a home for his father, old William, in retirement from his trade as a barber and wigmaker in Covent Garden. With old William’s declining health and changes in his own life, Turner sold the house in 1826.
In 2017 the property was comprehensively restored with money from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and today is open to the general public from Wednesday (from 23rd September) through to Saturday, 12pm-4pm. Booking essental.
