18 Stafford Terrace - The Sambourne Family Home, London

4.6



18 Stafford Terrace, formerly known as Linley Sambourne House, was the home of the Punch illustrator Edward Linley Sambourne (1844–1910) in Kensington, London. The house, now Grade II* listed, is currently open to the public as a museum.


18 Stafford Terrace was an almost new townhouse when the Sambournes moved in, in 1875. It was Linley Sambourne who set about re-decorating the house in the Aesthetic style. Today the house is a fine example of middle-class Aestheticism; its influences can still be seen permeating throughout the house, from decorative Sunflower motifs in the stained glass windows to the fine selection of William Morris wallpapers that hang within the rooms through to the displayed collection of blue-and-white Chinese import porcelain.

  • Very interesting and a wonderful time capsule. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and only a short distance from the hustle and bustle of Kensington High Street. A gem.
  • Mr. Freddy Mercury lived at 12 Stafford Terrace? I'd go just to touch the outside of his home. The most talented and hottest man to ever live. I LOVE YOU FREDDY!
