The gallery is really interesting, excellent literature and interesting pieces. The house is interesting, and certainly a place to stop by if you're in the area. The guides are very knowledgeable. And all for free!

Jim Ede's house and gallery are exactly as he left it - a combination of a domestic dwelling and art gallery. Entrance is free but by timed ticket. There is an art library where you can look at any of the books whilst on site,...More

These cottages, once the residence of a London Tate Museum curator, and now part of one of the most intimate art galleries and museums in Cambridge, have such marvelous interiors.

My fourth visit to Kettle’s Yard and what a delight it remains. It has an atmosphere all of it’s own and the new extension has not damaged it. It’s a must see in Cambrifdge.

Really enjoyed our first visit. Booked the house tour online. Loved the house with such interesting rooms and art. The gallery exhibition was also good. Cafe good too. Went the Punters pub round the corner that has lots of art and good food. Do visit!
