Really worth booking a place on a tour. Only 6 people allowed in at a time to see this remarkable home. Very different to an average National Trust experience. I won't spoil the experience by describing too much. It is a very short walk from...More

The outside of this small London terrace appears run down and is partially obscured by large shrubs/trees. On the wall is a very small sign saying National Trust and when you arrive there is a small sign on the front step saying "wait here for...More

I went Sunday and overall, I was extremely pleased with this site. The interior is just incredible with intricate fretwork everywhere, delicate paintings on the walls and floor and an eclectic collection of books, records and artifacts/antiques and travel memorabilia. Similar to Sir John Soane's....More

This must be one of the National Trust’s smallest properties, a terraced house with just two bedrooms and only about 12 feet wide. An otherwise unremarkable 19th century town house, its claim to fame is that its last owner spent years embellishing almost every inch...More

Stepping inside 575 Wandsworth Road is like stepping into another world, it is timeless and is the vision and work of one man. The house is small and every inch is decorated with delicate fretwork and paintings. Only 6 people at a time are taken...More

Great lived in feeling by an interesting artistic and clever man. You will not find another home like this. The guide gave us very good information initially as we sat round a table and as we toured the house. For a cafe stop we went...More

I ended up going on spec but fully expected not to be admitted. I walked past it as it looks so unimpressive from outside and there is no fixed sign showing it is a National Trust Property. I was amazed by the intricacy of the...More
