Sometimes I do get fed up of asking the question “should the home of everyone famous be opened to the public as a museum?”.
Lamb House is another of this ilk.
Home of Henry James, the USA’s answer to Charles Dickens.
Naturally, I was there to have a peek inside a lovely Georgian home, but alas only 2 rooms on the ground floor and a telephone cubby hole are open to the public. A tenant lives upstairs.
I do like Rye, the town where this house is. It’s a lovely stop-off on an afternoon after a visit to Great Dixter, which is only a 15 minute drive away. Rye is a seaside town with steep cobbled streets and an oldy worldly feel.
When visited: May 2013
