Van Gogh House Guided Tours
We offer tours on the last Saturday and Sunday of each month.
Our guided tours offer visitors an opportunity to learn about 87 Hackford Road’s most famous tenant, as well as the architecture, history, and future of the house. The tour begins at 87 Hackford Road and includes a short walk to set the local context, followed by a tour of the house’s interior. Tours take place on the last weekend of the month and last about an hour and fifteen minutes. Tickets cost £12, with discounts for Friends and students.
Our next tours, on the 23rd and 24th April, are also share with Roma Tearne’s Open House sharing from her time as our artist in residence. Entry to both is included with a tour ticket.
In Vincent’s Footsteps Walking Tours
We are excited to partner with Footprints of London to bring you a walking tour that retraces Van Gogh’s walk from his office in Covent Garden to his lodgings at 87 Hackford Road.
This extensive tour covers a 3½ mile journey (which Van Gogh alleges he did in 45 minutes!) exploring what London would have been like in the early 1870s. The tour traces the river Thames along what was then the newly built Victoria Embankment and across Westminster Bridge which Van Gogh sketched on Goupil and Co headed notepaper. The walk finishes with a guided tour of Van Gogh House, where we delve into how different life was then before indoor plumbing, domestic cookers, electricity and the motor vehicle.
Please note: there are no walking tours in June or July, however there are two tours available in August.
