Valentine Mansion

Stained-glass Windows, Valentine Mansion, IlfordThere will be an open weekend at Valentine Mansion, Ilford, from 14 to 15 February, 11am to 4pm, admission free. This gives the public a chance to see the results of major restoration work on this fine mansion (built circa 1696) carried out by the London Borough of Redbridge with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Don't expect too much from the Rose Garden at this time of year. Visit the recreated Victorian kitchen and Georgian rooms. View the stained-glass windows and groan at some contemporary art. The top floor of the mansion has been converted to artists' studios. Click the title link for details.
