Museum, gallery, garden, shop, literary house and lived-in home

Shandy Hall was the home of Laurence Sterne from 1760 until his death in 1768.  Here he wrote ‘A Sentimental Journey’ and his masterpiece, ‘The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman’ which has never been out of print and is still as astonishing today as when it burst into the late 18th century. 

This beautiful 15th century house is now a registered museum run by The Laurence Sterne Trust.  It is surrounded by two acres of gardens, including over 100 roses, cottage garden plants, and a woodland garden managed for wildlife.  It contains the world's finest collection of Sterne's works, letters, illustrations and ephemera, prints and paintings.  Artists, writers and musicians are inspired by Sterne to this day.  An extensive range of artistic and educational projects are undertaken by the LST and a wide variety of exhibitions relating to Sterne are held in the gallery.

Shandy Hall attracts visitors, enthusiasts, academics, writers and artists from around the world.  The house has been lived in for nearly 600 years, and as well as being a museum, is still a lived-in home where you are sure of a personal welcome.  To find out more, please visit the Shandy Hall website.
