Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Formerly known as Linley Sambourne House, the Kensington address where from 1875 Punch cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne lived with his wife and two children provides a chance to see a late-Victorian, middle-class home that has survived largely unchanged. The house was passed on from one generation of the family to the next and almost all the original decoration remains intact, the rooms filled with the furniture and personal possessions the Sambournes left behind. A huge archive of diaries, papers, bills and letters also survives, providing an exceptionally detailed picture of daily life in the house. Visits have previously been by guided tour only, but from September 23 2015 the house will be open on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons for guests to simply drop in. Tours will still run on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. The house closes for two months each summer for maintenance and restoration.
