Fodor's Expert Review Gainsborough's House
The birthplace and family home of Thomas Gainsborough (1727–88) contains many paintings and drawings by the artist and his contemporaries. Although the facade is Georgian, with touches of the 18th-century neo-Gothic style, the building is mostly Tudor. The walled garden has a mulberry tree planted in 1620 and a printmaking workshop. The entrance is through the shop and café on Weavers Lane.
