A Palace of Art 

‘You have built and fitted up, with the greatest beauty and elegance, a palace, and filled it with gems of art…’ Oscar Wilde

We welcome group visits, and we would be delighted to create a wonderful experience for you and your guests.

Guided Tours

Exclusive guided tours of the house are available to book for £4.50 per head – the perfect way to discover the story of this unique seaside villa and our wonderful collection of paintings, sculptures and treasures from around the world.

If your group has a special interest, please let us know, and we can try to identify relevant areas of our collection.


Catering for your group is also available with a whole range of options from our Cafe, offered at a reduced pre-booked rate.

Please contact us to book in advance to discuss your requirements and make the most of the Russell-Cotes experience.
