Details

JMW Turner, one of England’s greatest painters, fulfilled a little-known aspect of his artistic ambition when he built Sandycombe Lodge near once-rural Twickenham, to his own designs, c. 1813. This small house, used by Turner and his ‘old dad’ as a retreat from the pressures of the London art world, reveals a fascinating side of Turner’s life and art.

Sandycombe is currently undergoing an extensive conservation programme and is scheduled to open to the public in early summer 2017, when we look forward to welcoming visitors and sharing the many stories that have emerged.

Our website www.turnerintwickenham.org.uk gives a lot of information about this ‘unknown Turner’, including video clips on aspects of conservation. Booking details and visitor information will be put on our website in the spring, and also updated here.
