If you are ever visiting Cambridge I highly recommend that you set time aside to visit this remarkable house and gallery. It was started by Jim Eade and his wife Helen. Eade had been a curator at the Tate and after living for some time in Morocco returned to the UK in the 1950’s and bought a row of cottages in Cambridge. This he turned into a  gallery in a house – Kettle’s Yard. They had an open house with concerts and even loaned pictures to students to put on their dig’s walls. He later gifted the gallery to  the University. Its still  a remarkable place. You can sit on the chairs, enjoy the library. Once when I arrived for a visit very tired I even had a nap on a sofa!  Admission is free. Open 12-5pm Tues – Sat. Castle Street, Cambridge CB3 0AQ. Its very close to the centre barely 10 mins walk.
