House Visit

Explore the art and lives of artists Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and their contemporaries.

Visit our house to explore the art and lives of artists Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and their contemporaries.

Almost as soon as they moved to Charleston in 1916, Bell and Grant began to paint. Not just the walls, but on every surface imaginable, transforming the house into a living, breathing work of art. Over the following decades, Charleston became a gathering point for some of the 20th century’s most radical artists, writers and thinkers known collectively as the Bloomsbury group. It is where they lived out their progressive social and artistic ideals.

Today, it continues to be a place that brings people together to engage with art and ideas.

A visitor assistant will accompany you around the house as you explore the individually designed and hand-painted rooms.

Entry is by timed ticket and pre-booking is essential. A maximum of five people from the same household or support bubble will be admitted into the house at each entry time.
