Visiting Hogarth's House

A hidden gem waiting to be discovered..

Hogarth’s House is now open.

In order to keep our staff and visitors safe only the historic part of Hogarth’s House is open to the public from 12 noon – 5pm from Tuesday to Sunday as well as Bank Holiday Mondays. The House is closed on Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Booking tickets

Due to the government guidance around Covid-19, we have changed the way people visit Hogarth’s House. Visitors can now book exclusive access to our permanent exhibitions across the five rooms of the Eighteenth Century house the former home of William Hogarth.

A booking (one ticket) entitles entry for up six people who all identify as part of a single household or bubble. You will have sole access to the historic house form 40 minutes and so the only people you will have to socially distance from our are well trained staff.

Read more about the measures we have in place to keep both our visitors and staff safe in our Covid-19 news update.

Tickets can be booked via Eventbrite.

Accessibility

To the House

Due to our capital redevelopment project, there is currently no step-free access to Hogarth’s House. We apologise for the inconvenience and are working towards rectifying this as quickly as possible.

In the House and Weston Studio

The first floor of the House can only be accessed via a narrow stair-case of 12 steps and low height clearance, but the exhibition room on the ground floor of the house contains two digital presentations with an on-screen model of the whole of the building.

The Weston Studio

Our capital re-development funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund will provide us with a new studio space to host activities and events. Once opened, there will be level access throughout the Weston Studio.

Facilities

Our toilets are currently closed to visitors as a hygiene measure.
