‘he declared if he could have had his life again, he would have been an architect’

Join House Director Ricky Pound as he examines the architectural influences at Sandycombe Lodge, a house designed by the artist J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) in 1813 and who lived there with his father until 1826. This tour will explore the diverse architectural styles Turner employed at his house, whilst assessing the influence on its design by Turner’s fellow Professor at the Royal Academy, the celebrated architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837).

The tour will last around 50 minutes. The group can consist of up to twelve visitors, so booking is strongly advised.
