William Hogarth was a renowned artist and satirist in the 18th century. He lived in this house between 1749 and his death in 1764 and since 1909 it has been a museum to Hogarth's life and work.
Although there is little of Hogarth's furniture or personal belongings on display, there is plenty of his work to be seen. Examples include his Gin Lane and Beer Street engravings and a reproduction of his most famous work The Rake's Progress.
In addition the interior of the house is an excellent example of an 18th century residence. It is worth remembering that when Hogarth lived here the house in the heart of the countryside - hard to imagine with the busy traffic that surrounds it today.
Hogarth's House is open daily except Mondays. Opening hours vary according to day and time of year so check in advance. Admission is free.
|Hogarth's tomb can be seen nearby in the churchyard of St Nicholas Church.
