This is the home of Ellen Terry, a famous Victorian actress. It was maintained after he death by her daughter and one assumes it is during this phase that is was transformed from house into museum of the theatre. The costumes, especially the beetle wing dress was amazing, but there are only so many "dagger as used by Sir thing wotsit when playing Hamlet" that I'm prepared to look at. The house itself is full of interest and the Barn theatre round the back of the house is quite astonishing. The history of the area, as displayed in the cow byre, was very interesting, that this used to be a ship building area seems quite incredible now.
Parking was difficult when I visited, with the assigned laybys both being full.
