A Christmas Evening
Monday, 4th December 2017 from 4:00pm

Lamb House was built in 1723 by James Lamb.

Henry James leased the property and later purchased in 1899. It was here he wrote the Awkward Age, The Wing of a Dove, the Ambassadors and The Golden Bowl. In the Summer months James liked to use the Garden Room to dictate to his secretary. Sadly the Garden Room was destroyed by a bomb during World War II. After the death of Henry James, Lamb house became the home of A C Benson (who wrote the words to Land of Hope and Glory) and E F Benson. Rye and its surrounding area were the inspiration for E F Benson's Mapp and Lucia novels.

Lamb House was presented to the National Trust in 1950. Some of Henry James possessions are on display. The walled garden has a rich variety of plants including roses. Lamb House is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 11.00 - 17.30. Last entry is thirty minutes before closing.
