Charleston is a unique museum preserving the home of artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. Both were pioneers of a movement that took art beyond the canvas, so to visit the House is to be immersed in a world where colour, design and radical thinking take centre stage. Today Charleston promotes the legacy of the Bloomsbury group, which included Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes and E.M. Forster, and continues to inspire artistic and intellectual freedom through diverse public programming.
