Guided Tours in June

Slideshow Shim

‘One day I had it in mind that I would build a house as an offering of love and affection to my wife’

Our Guided Tours introduce you to the wonderful story of Merton and Annie Russell-Cotes and how they came to create the vision of East Cliff Hall. Expect a tale that takes in romance, world travel, the growth of Bournemouth, and the most beautiful art of the era, with a cast of characters that include the great and the good of Victorian and Edwardian society.

Our Drop-In Guided Tours do not need to be pre-booked and are included in the price of admission. They last approximately one hour.
