Discover the Russell-Cotes story…
In 1901 Merton Russell-Cotes gave his wife Annie a dream house on a cliff-top, overlooking the sea. It was an extraordinary, extravagant birthday present – lavish, splendid, and with a touch of fantasy.
They filled this exotic seaside villa with beautiful objects from their travels around the world, and lined the walls with a remarkable collection of British art, creating a unique atmosphere in a most dramatic setting.
A home, an art gallery, and a museum. Then they sealed it in time, and gave it to the future.

Teas/Coffees and Cake can be organised afterwards at a cost of £4.70 per person. Please add Y or N after your surname for Tea/Coffee and Cake so we can arrange with the museum.
