We are raising funds through The Big Give Christmas Challenge!



Join us this year and help raise much-needed funds for our wellbeing programme of art sessions at Turner’s House for those with mental health problems, older people and our local refugee and migrant communities.

“I experience long-term mental health issues, and have had various treatment programmes over past years. I find the atmosphere to be calming and welcome in contrast to the outside world, a place where me behaving oddly is accepted and where I will be helped” (participant quote 2023)

This year we are aiming to raise £10,000. Every single penny raised will support the delivery of creative sessions to help participants build social and artistic skills and improve mental health and wellbeing.


Turner’s House is now closed to the public until February 2024.

Thank you!



Turner’s House Trust is an independent registered charity which relies on visitors admission, grants and donations to remain open at all.

In 1813 England’s great landscape painter J.M.W. Turner built a small villa, Sandycombe Lodge, on a large plot near the Thames at Twickenham. Here, the painter became an architect, guided by the hand of his friend John Soane.

Support Us

The Friends of Turner’s House was set up in 2004 to support Professor Livermore (the last resident) in his aim to preserve the house for the nation, and now supports the aims of the Turner’s House Trust to restore and conserve Sandycombe Lodge.

The House

Sandycombe Lodge is J.M.W. Turner’s largest artwork, and thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund and generous supporters, it has been restored to its original beauty. The house has a fascinating history and an exciting future, come and visit and be part of its legacy.

Collection Highlight

Sandycombe Lodge was built by 1813 to the designs of England’s great landscape painter, J.M.W. Turner; working here as his own architect to create a quiet retreat for himself, away from the pressures of the London art world.
