charming house with some lovely pieces that I was not familiar with - and v helpful guides. i am now a big fan of william congdon. the separate gallery space contains more challenging pieces / installations- would recommend watching the videos first to orient yourself

Loved the house, the art and the concepts found inside. The contemporary art gallery beside the house has temporary exhibitions.

An intriguing and beguiling venue, be sure to ask the volunteers about the exhibits and get a catalogue - Jim Edes' voice is the essential accompaniment to this venue.

Kettles Yard is a brilliant concept. Illusionism (possibly a new word!) is very apparent in some of the objects there........for the rest a delight to view, understand and simply admire. Please visit if only on a bucket list because this is so worth it

I have loved this place for decades and its modernist beauty and quirky contents and style have made me covet it for years! Kettle's Yard house has been an inspiration to interior design gurus and stylists for decades and the art on display is superb!

We almost missed it entirely as there is an unimpressive little gallery and shop next door which we thought was it and we can't be the only people! To enter the actual House you have to knock on a closed wooden door, but once let in you are in an absolute peach of a museum of art focussing on Ben... More

I never knew it existed though I had been to Cambridge many times. A chance mention over breakfast by a fellow guest took us there and we were delighted. It is a cross between an art gallery, a house visit and a place to sit down. It is a veritable Tardis, huge inside and beautifully laid out with paintings, sculptures... More

Forget Tate Modern and its crowds and come to Kettles Yard for a much better experience of art. In the old house you can see art at close quarters in a domestic setting. Some great 20th century artists on display including Miro, Ben and Winifred Nicholson, William Scott and many more. Helpful staff on hand to discuss the paintings with.... More

If you like good art and a totally relaxing environment (lots of sofas to sit on), this is idyllic. I cant submit this unless I do 50 characters but really, what more is there to say, so am waffling.

Kettles yard house is unique. Cambridge is full of museums, and some of them are wonderful. But lots of other cities around the world have wonderful museums. Kettles Yard house is much more than a museum or a gallery. I am not even going to bother to try and explain how wonderful this little house is, you will just have... More
