London History Day - Sandycombe on the Home Front

London History Day - Sandycombe on the Home Front

For London History Day 2018, we will be exploring the theme of ‘courage’ with activities inspired by ‘Sandcombe on the Home Front’. Get ready for a day of talks and activities for the whole family as we delve into Sandycombe’s links to military history.

Join us to travel through time, first learning about the impact of the Napoleonic wars on JMW Turner’s Art and his time at Sandycombe Lodge, with the chance to make your own ship models inspired by the ones in the sitting room here at Turner’s House. Then, fast forward to the Second World War as we remember the incredible work done by the women who worked at Sandycombe Lodge during WWII making airmen’s goggles, and get stuck into a craft activity making your own goggles and fighter planes!

Activities are included in the regular admission price
Adults £6, Children under 15 £3 or family of 4 for £15
