18 Stafford Terrace: Private Tour
Fri 21 April 2017, 11:00 – 12:30 BST
From 1875, 18 Stafford Terrace was the home of Punch cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne, 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 also provides a rare example of what was known as an 'Aesthetic interior' or 'House Beautiful' style. The Aesthetic Movement of the late nineteenth century advocated the use of foreign or 'exotic' influences in the decoration of the home.
Led by our expert guide, the informative tour give a memorable insight into the Sambournes' lives and home, from interior decoration, eccentric possessions, to their day-to-day activities.
Please note that there is no disabled access or cafe on site and the entrance is via a few steep steps in the basement. There are 77 internal steps and we have folding stools available. The tour lasts for about an hour and a half and includes an introductory video for 10 minutes.
