Sambourne House at 18 Stafford Terrace was the home of Victorian illustrator and photographer Edward Linley Sambourne (1844 – 1910), his wife Marion, their two children and their live-in servants. The house gives an insight into the personal lives of the Sambourne family and provides a rare example of what was known as an 'Aesthetic interior' or 'House Beautiful' style.

The Sambournes lived in the house for over 36 years and, although they made some alterations, the basic decorative scheme remains the same today. Highlights include Japanese, Middle-Eastern and Chinese ceramics, exquisite stained glass, William Morris wallpapers and a selection of Sambourne’s own photography and illustration.

No disabled access.

Tickets: from £11
