Farley Farm House

(8.4 miles from Glyndebourne)

Tucked away in the Sussex countryside Farley Farm House conjures up an extraordinary atmosphere that testifies to its position as a meeting place for some of the key personalities in twentieth century art.

Lee Miller and Roland Penrose came to live in Farley Farm House in 1949 and for the next thirty five years they amassed a collection of contemporary art treasures, many created by their friends and visitors including Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Paul Éluard and Joan Miró. These works and numerous others are exhibited in the house alongside those of Penrose and Miller giving the visitor a fascinating look into the Surrealist world.

Today the collection is managed by the Penrose family as a privately run archive and museum. Each Sunday (April – October) the house, sculpture garden and gallery open to visitors. Private group tours can also be arranged.
