Talks will take place at 11.15am and 12 noon.
Activities will run on a drop-in basis between 11.00am - 1.00pm.
All on 31 May. Tickets will be available to attend both talks and activities.
Adults £6.00, Children £3.00, Family Ticket: £15.00 - Book online

As part of our regular admission fee, we'll be offering two special talks to celebrate London History Day. First on Turner and the Napoleonic Wars, using our beautiful ship models as a starting point. Secondly,  a talk on Sandycombe Lodge in WWII when it was used as a shadow factory for making airmen's goggles.

To accompany these talks, there will be family craft activities in the basement kitchen offering the chance to make your own model ship, and goggles!

As Turner's House has limited space and delicate interiors, these events will be ticketed and tickets available via our website.
