  • Very unusual property for the National Trust. Important that you start by one of the tour guides, otherwise you wouldn't really understand what it is about. After the tour, you are then free to look around yourself.
  • If you visit 2 Willow Road knowing you are walking into the home of a 1930's modernist architect and not an english country mansion you will not be disappointed. The initial 10 minute video is very informative and the tours of small groups with an informative guide (in our case at least) are great. Well worth the trip and we had a nice lunch at the pub round the corner too.
  • Engaging, immersive and evocative. The interiors, personal possessions, a palpable atmosphere and an enthusiastic guide conspire to conjure up the man and his milieu. Unreservedly recommended. A National Trust triumph.
  • Completely different to the majority of National Properties - find out about the man who designed the Trellick Tower and the house he built for himself.
  • One of the most underappreciated Modernist masterpieces. A staggeringly interesting house with some very unique details, particularly the bathroom's vented skylights and staged workspace areas. The house itself, despite being built in the 1930s could easily be mistaken for something from the mid 1970s, it is that ahead of its time, I recommend that all architectural students visit this as part of their studies. The entire project is also a planning masterstroke inasmuch as the story behind the opposition to the house is essential to understanding how the industry is still far behind architectural thought even to this day. The story of which is told in a rather well fitted mini screening room housed in Goldfinger's old garage at the start of the tour. Highly recommended, an education.
