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.
