The house is very interesting and our guide was amazingly knowledgeable. It’s possible to just walk around the house later in the day but the tour is essential really because without understanding the context it is not possible to appreciate the unique property. Before the...More

The NT has made great efforts to inculde kids in its properties, this is not one. From sitting through a frankly pointless video to a tour that felt more lile a trap than a tour please be careful about going if you have kids. It...More

This house is totally different from other NT properties. Built in the late 1930s, it's a must-see for anyone interested in modernist design. The introductory film is worth watching for background to the origins of the house and its architect, Erno Goldfinger. It lasts about...More
