Clouds Hill

This museum is possibly the most unique of all the historic houses I have visited.  It was designed by William Walker & Sons circa the 1870’s and by some miracle, the house has remained in the same family ever since.  All the rooms have their original decorations and the museum is slowly, but surely, restoring them.  The result is a rich archive of Victoriana of all forms – textiles, wood carvings, porcelains, books and ephemera – basically anything you can think of – any many things you never thought of.  I highly recommend a visit – lovers of all things Victorian will not be disappointed.  See: http://www.cloudshill.org/
