For fifteen years, between 1860 to 1875, Dimbola Lodge was the home and workplace of the celebrated Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. Now preserved by the Julia Margaret Cameron Trust, the house is a fascinating museum dedicated to her life and work which also showcases contemporary exhibitions from artists and photographers around the world. Inside the house are many original features including Gothic carvings, William Morris wallpaper, Julia’s personally designed stairway, Victorian glass, 19th century artefacts and a re-creation of her bedroom.
Schools are welcome to book a self-guided visit to the museum. There is a free museum trail (suitable for upper Key stage 1 and Key stage 2) available to help students explore the house and the photographs of Julia Margaret Cameron.
