Gainsborough's House is the birthplace museum of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788), one of the greatest artists in the history of British art. Gainsborough's House has the largest collection of Gainsborough's work on display at any one time, in Britain.
The house itself dates from around 1500 and retains many interesting architectural features. Its Georgian facade, built by Thomas Gainsborough's father, and other elegant additions date from the eighteenth century.
