An excellent collection and much more than that, a memory of place and a time. The eclectic collection of works of art and objets trouve is very stimulating and the way the building itself has been modified and developed over time to become a very snug and cosy home is well worth seeing. Charmingly old fashioned curatorial staff, you have... More

Unfortunately, Kettle's Yard is closed for a couple of years for refurb. Make a note in your diary to visit when it reopens and in the meantime check out their website and try and track down those of the contents that are out visiting. But the house is what makes it. So go and see it in a couple of... More

This lovely house is close to the museum of Cambridge. I went there at the end of july and unluckly I was told it will be closed for two years for renovation. It is worth a stop just if you are planning to visit the other museum. What a pity!

Excellent exhibitions here all the time often with intelligent catalogues to accompany them. At the very edge of Cambridge a bit out of the way but worth seeking out. Excels in British Art.

Lovely art gallery in unusual atmosphere, having been a private house. Not far from the centre of Cambridge and a relatively quiet spot. Very knowledgeable custodians, generally elderly ladies who are all too keen to tell you more about the place! It's in the process of being refurbished so I hope they don't spoil it.

Kettle's Yard is an absolute gem. Quirky, interesting and full of interesting art and artifacts collected and kept in the house. Walking from room to room you come across all sorts of delights and the house itself is interesting. From ringing the bell at the front door to be let in, right through go sitting at a table and flicking... More

I absolutely love this place! I stumbled across it completely by accident and it's so charming and lovely I can't stop going back. Luckily for me it's free of charge! It's a beautiful house which you can wander around freely, taking in all of the sights.

This house is just beautiful. You can go around, touch everything, sit everywhere, read all the books. And it's totally free, you just need to ring the doorbell!
