Overview
More
Sussex home of Surrealist photographer Lee Miller and artist Roland Penrose. Lee Miller and Roland Penrose came to live at Farleys House in 1949 and for the thirty five years that followed they built up a collection of contemporary art treasures, many of which were created by their friends and visitors including Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington and Joan Miro. The work of these and numerous others are exhibited in the house alongside those of Penrose and Miller giving the visitor a fascinating look into the world of the Surrealists. Farleys House and Gallery are open to the public on Sundays between April and October each year. Private group tours can be arranged for 12 - 45 people on Tuesday and Thursdays with advance booking. All visits to the house are by guided tour.

Farleys House seems as filled with different layers of time as it is with art, found objects, tribal figures and many other things collected by British surrealist Roland Penrose and his partner Lee Miller. There's a Picasso in every room, a cabinet of curiosities in...More

A very interesting place . Other reviews explain the context, so if one is really interested in the subject do go. If you are not, do go anyway because you will be converted.Excellent guides.In the shop, focus on the postcards to keep as souvenirs.

As a graduate of art, I have always had a specialist interest in Surrealism. I am particularly passionate about the work of the female artists of the genre. Their work, in my opinion, holds its own in comparison to their better-known male counterparts. But it's...More

It was amazing to learn about Lee Miller and here incredible life as a model, artistic photographer and a war correspondant. It is unbelievable that there has not been a major motion picture made about here or a tv series.

We knew about Lee Miller's photography but had not realised she had lived in Sussex and was married to Roland Penrose, a leading surrealist. The excellent guided tour (well worth the admission fee) introduced us to Lee and Roland's lives and was fascinating and poignant...More
