Fascinating tour, followed by Sunday lunch

£17 per person | Up to 20 spaces (minimum 10)

Stephens House, previously Avenue House, is an imposing Grade II listed mid-Victorian mansion with extensive gardens landscaped by Robert Marnock. The land was bought in 1874 by Henry Charles (“Inky”) Stephens, son of the inventor of the famous blue-black ink. He died in 1918, bequeathing Avenue House to the people.

A private tour will be lead by the charming General Manager, Malcolm Godfrey, beginning in the house with an introduction to the historical background of the house and gardens, then going on to visit the grounds including the Bothy Garden and the stable yard. The tour will finish up in the Stephens Collection boutique museum within the house.

(The tour is accessible to wheelchair users but for those on foot some walking is required.)

Sunday lunch will be served in the Dining Room, reserved for Who London members. The Dining Room has a very distinct Victorian feel, retaining period features, and is a room that was used extensively when the house was lived in. It is also home to Spike Milligan’s piano which is on permanent loan from his family.
