Farleys House

About Farleys House

Lee Miller, Roland Penrose and their son Antony Penrose’s Sussex home became a meeting place for some of the leading figures from the world of 20th century modern art.




Pablo Picasso stayed in 1950, and Max Ernst, Joan Miró, Man Ray, Leonora Carrington and Dorothea Tanning visited from overseas whilst Eileen Agar, Kenneth Armitage, William Turnbull, John Craxton and Richard Hamilton formed the British contingent.

Works by many of these artists are displayed in the house in a selection that regularly changes as items are loaned to exhibitions in galleries around the world.

Farleys House remains alive and vibrant today as it documents Surrealism and modern art and in so doing informs our present day.

All visits to Farleys House are by guided tour and we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment as places are limited. The tour is not suitable for children under 12.
