About

As part of a three-year project, Lamb House will be redesigned to give our visitors more access to the house, the stories it contains and the writing it has inspired. This includes restoring historic panelling in the oak parlour and the King’s Room, re-displaying the collections, restoring the garden and revisiting how the stories of Henry James and EF Benson are told. Lamb House has been an inspirational environment for many authors, resulting in it also becoming a fictionalised setting for some of their most well-known books. King George I stayed there in 1726.  Explore the historical significance of this Sussex treasure.

Introductory talks for groups in the garden - please arrange before your visit.

    Definitely a must visit when in the area. The gardens area wonderful and huge. Also the king George the 1 St stayed there and Mrs Lamb had to give up her room for him despite being heavily pregnant... Read full review

    £7.50 entry probably a little over the odds if weather means you can’t use the garden and lady in the ticket office slightly pushy trying to sell annual membership but pleasant with it. Not a lot to... Read full review
