"Linley Sambourne House" The Sambourne Family Home Tip by KennetRose
The Sambourne Family Home, London: 1 reviews and 1 photos
It looks just like all the others in its row of stucco town houses behind Kensington High Street. Behind the front door, however, is perhaps London's least known, most likeable and quirkiest museums. It was the London home of 19th century political cartoonist and illustrator Edward Linley Sambourne. Now it is a perfectly preserved Victorian town house, left just the way it was when Sambourne died with all its furniture and fittings intact.
The museum is extremely delicate and opening times are limited. Call Leighton House (number below) for details.
The house is currently closed for renovation and will reopen in January 2003.
Address: 18 Stafford Terrace, W8
Directions: High Street Kensington tube.
