Gainsborough’s House is the birthplace museum of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) one of the greatest artists in the history of British art. Gainsborough House has the largest collection of Gainsborough’s work on display at any one time in Britain.

The house itself dates from around 1500 and retains many interesting architectural features. Its Georgian facade, built by Thomas Gainsborough’s father, and other elegant additions date from the eighteenth century.

The visitor entrance and gift shop are located on Weavers Lane which leads out on to a terrace and walled garden, with an ancient Mulberry tree. The House and gardens are fully accessible.
