Visiting 575 Wandsworth Road: what you need to know

Bedroom of 575 Wandsworth Road

Experience this extraordinary home and unique work of art. Secure your place on an intimate pre-booked guided visit for up to six people.

The house will be open for pre-booked visits only every Thursday at 11am, 1pm, 3pm. Due to the scale and fragility of the house, places are limited to just 6 people per time slot and the visit will last approximately an hour.  As the house is on a busy road with no shelter, we recommend you arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before the start of your tour.  

The house is tucked away with no door number so you may need to count down from other houses to find us. Please wait at the bottom of the stairs, and our guide will welcome you in when the tour is about to start.  

To help us protect hand-painted floors, please bring a pair of slippers or gripped socks to change into before you explore the house.  

How to book your visit 

All visitors must book their visit ticket in advance, including members.  

Entry is free for members, but please bring your membership card with you. Non-members will need to pay in advance. 

Please book one ticket per person, except for children aged 5 or under as they don’t need a ticket. Children are welcome, though as the house is very fragile we ask that they are accompanied by an adult at all times. 

  • Tickets are for your use only and are not available for resale 
  • We'll send your booking confirmation by email. Please make sure you fill in your correct email address when you book to ensure you receive your confirmation email. 

  • Two weeks of tours will be live at any one time. Every Thursday we'll release new bookings for  another week. You can book up to 8am on the day.
