Visit: The Bloomsbury Experience

  • Charleston |
  •  |

This place of wonder and inspiration, a 17th-century house near Lewes, transformed from 1916 onwards by the two Bloomsbury artists, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, will be revealed in this private tour. These artists took painting beyond the canvas. They decorated walls, doors and furniture in their unique style. They also created a painters' garden, filled with sculptures and mosaics. The flowers reflect their love of vibrant colour and appear in their Still Life images. It is a short distance to Berwick Church for a chance to see their murals and decorations in the Church.

NB Monk's House is National Trust. Please bring your membership cards. Non-NT members please bring £2.90 entrance fee.
