The prize during a recent visit to Cambridge was exploring Kettle's Yard. The gallery houses temporary exhibitions of different artists (now it's Antony Gormley's time), the house is a magic place. The house was the home of Jim and Helen Ede. In the 1920s and...More

We were drawn by the Gormley exhibition, but really enjoyed our visit to the house which is full of interesting 20th century art and sculpture. Fascinating and very worthy of a visit.

This is a friendly and homey collection of modern art, but it is limited to that, and not as outstanding as many reviews would have it. To view the collection, one must be able to climb spiral staircases, so it is not recommended for people...More

Outstanding gallery. Amazing to visit Ede’s house with all its original artworks. Marvellously conversational curators throughout. Good to visit on a weekday when not too busy. Antony Gormley worth seeing too.

Kettle's Yard is mainly the story of a couple who left a home to the university and included their own extensive art collection. The new build gives valuable additional exhibition space while the house itself is a revelation. It would be a shame to spoil...More

We are fans of Anthony Gormley, and this exhibition was the main reason for visiting Cambridge when we did. We were disappointed. We have seen his work at various locations, the ghost-like figures in the Great Hall at Winchester a few years ago, the single...More

I could spend far more time here than we had, there was so much to see, it must have been great to collect all the art and decorate the house and live in it.
