Turner's House Trust

Charity description

Turner's House Trust logo
Thank you for your interest.

Turner’s House Trust intends to restore Sandycombe Lodge and make it available for all as a living reminder of J M W Turner's life in Twickenham and its influence on his art; 2013 marked the bicentenary of this building, a three-dimensional work by an artist renowned in his time and celebrated internationally today.

Please donate to support our cause.

J M W Turner’s house, Sandycombe Lodge in Twickenham, is a little-known treasure. Here the painter became his own architect, and in 1813 built a picturesque country villa close to the Thames, which inspired some of his greatest paintings. The house has had unsympathetic additions and is in a run-down condition. Turner’s House Trust intends to restore it to its original appearance and make it a monument to Turner in Twickenham. Once restored, the house will open to the public and allow visitors to explore a small but beautiful building, with fascinating stories to tell.

In the words of one visitor ‘Just being here is an inspiration’, and this has been echoed many times over. Alas, inspiration alone does not keep out rainwater or restore buildings. Please help us by donating, and please visit the house to feel the vibes.
