We visited Kettle's Yard because we love to visit galleries, and it was so high on Tripadvisor's list of attractions in Cambridge. While, we did enjoy looking around the house, unfortunately, we were a little disappointed with the art collection - definitely not to our...More

Haven’t been to kettles yard since university days, when I found it lacking in spirit of place. Sadly still is. Seems not to be clear whether it is a home with art, or a gallery in an interesting house. There is a rather pretentious process...More

Also fascinating art installation exhibit on refugees. Superb film show (circa 40 minutes). Totally absorbing. Fresh and high...More

The Edes assembled a splendid collection of early to mid-twentieth century art, just as early modernists were transforming the meaning of art in western culture. They assembled it all in rustic surroundings where they made living day-to-day into a fine art. Not to be missed...More

The recently reopened and renovated Kettle’s Yard has been very well done. The new exhibition area is functional and attractive and has somehow created a lot more space than it previously seemed to have. The café is a great addition and the sitting out area...More
