Russell-Cotes Open Day

A Vision of a Victorian Villa..

The Guardian says, ” A must-see , even on the sunniest of day in Bournemouth “

How would you decorate your dream house?

Victorian trailblazer Merton Russell-Cotes designed and built East Cliff Hall for his beloved wife, and to contain their collections of art and artefacts gathered from all around the world. As part of Bournemouth’s Arts by the Sea Festival, Russell-Cotes are offering free entry for one day only. Let Victorian guides help you to discover the story of the Russell-Cotes, their journeys across the globe, and the fabulous house to which they returned home.

Free Entry

The Russell-Cotes museum is a registered charity (306288), and all donations received help to preserve the house and its collections for the future.


You can also catch the last day of the Rituals and Revelry: Masks and Puppets from Around the World and the final day of David Bent @ The Russell-Cotes.
