Farnham Library & Farnham Rep in the Culver Room

Vernon House, 28 West Street, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 7DR

Vernon House partly dates from 1563, with street front dated at 1721, but with later changes following a fire in about 1860. Visit the panelled Culver Room on the ground floor, where Charles I is said to have stayed on his way to his trial and execution in London. The panelling has been recently restored. The library itself is in a new building behind the house and the big garden, with a great cedar tree and modern sculptures, is terraced down to the river meadows.

House and library open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Also on Saturday, performances by Farnham Rep in the Culver Room at 1400 and 1530 of “A POT OF PAINT IN THE PUBLIC’S FACE”, readings of poetry and prose about artists and their work. No advance booking required.

This event took place in September 2016 and the entry is now archived.
