Owner description: The Museum is now closed until 18 January 2016. 19 New King Street is a delightful and unique example of a fully restored modest Georgian townhouse. It was home to the astronomer and musician William Herschel and his sister Caroline. Particularly evocative features include Herschel’s workshop, his music room and a charming 18th Century formal garden where, with a telescope of his own construction, Herschel discovered the planet Uranus in 1781. In the Star Vault an award winning film takes you on a voyage of discovery through the universe and brings the history of the house to life. Exhibition in the modern Caroline Lucretia Gallery 16 April – 18 December: Science and Spirituality; Astronomy and the Benedictine Order
