We are fans of Anthony Gormley, and this exhibition was the main reason for visiting Cambridge when we did. We were disappointed. We have seen his work at various locations, the ghost-like figures in the Great Hall at Winchester a few years ago, the single...More

I could spend far more time here than we had, there was so much to see, it must have been great to collect all the art and decorate the house and live in it.

Easily accessed, great staff attendance and has quiet seating areas at different levels. Disabled...More

I didn't get to the house yet (and there was quite a line, so it must be great!), but the gallery--which is free and requires no tickets--is excellent. There's a huge amount of space, and the lighting and walls are very flexible to bring out...More

The preserved house was the home of an accomplished art collector and was visited my many important artists of that era. A number of their works are still on display.

If you like 20th-century art or just want to see and feel the inside of a Cambridge intellectual's house, pop in to Kettle's Yard. It is a bit like entering a tardis because the ground floor is small and intimate whereas the galleries upstairs are...More

I always loved visiting Kettles Yard in the past. It is recently impressively enhanced with more attractions plus an excellent cafe. The films about refugees were poignant, powerful, and unexpected. Its a good idea that numbers are limited now into the old house. So book...More

As a Cambridge resident, we began to wonder if the rebuilding work would ever be finished, but now that it is, the space is much-improved. A fantastic little house, gallery and exhibition space. During term time there are also some great concerts: we have been...More
