David Parr House, Gwydir Street, Cambridge
Thursday 09 April 2020

This tour is organised by The Arts Society CANTAB.

David Parr decorated his own home in the style of the grand interiors he worked on every day.  His house with its hand-painted walls became a pattern book of the work of late 19th century masters including George Frederick Bodley, William Morris and Charles Eamer Kempe.  Thanks to David Parr’s family his work has survived intact. The house was bought from the family in 2009 and has now been carefully conserved. 

Our tour will last approximately 1½ - 2 hours.

Time:  3.30 p.m.

Cost:   £16.00 per person

Please note that due to the size of the house, group size is limited and bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis.

Please book with Diane Heard either by telephone 01223 870458 or by email
