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!

Kettle's Yard is a unique place, and one of my favourites in Cambridge. It was originally home to Jim and Helen Ede. In the 1960s, Jim Ede gave the house and it's collections to the University of Cambridge, and it has been preserved as they left it. I first visited on a sunny afternoon, and found it to be a...

A delightful place to retreat to and absorb a bit of culture. The house is charming with lots of little treasures. Really a pleasure.

We visited on a Sunday when the small museum was buzzing with visitors. The exhibition of modern art featuring art and movement was informative and interesting. Just about the right size for viewing .

The Heni Gaudier-Brzeska exhibition was on when I visited Kettle's Yard Gallery. This exhibition was small but intriguing. I was so fascinated by this artist that I read up on him after the exhibition. His life was tragically cut short, but he managed to create some beautiful pieces of art during his short career. Kettle's Yard House is a fascinating... More

This museum is like a tardis. It starts small and gets bigger and bigger. Very interesting collection of paintings and other artifacts. A favourite museum for me

Kettles Yard Gallery & House are very easily accessible on foot in Cambridge. They are situated very close to the FOLK MUSEUM. When you visit the Gallery, do go and visit the HOUSE and also the CHURCH next door. Definitely places not to miss.
