    Private Guided Tour of Turners House

    Exclusive to Kew Society Members

    Sunday May 10th 2015

    We were delighted that Kew Society members were offered a guided tour of Sandycombe Lodge in St Margaret's. Our thanks must go to the three guides who gave us a very interesting tour of this gem of a building that is hidden away in St Margaret's.

    The house was designed c1813 by the great landscape painter JMW Turner for his use as a small country retreat where he lived with his father. The house is in its 'pre-conservation' state and fund raising is under way to conserve this important building as a monument to Turner.

    We look forward to coming back when the restoration is complete post 2016.
