You'll step back into the days of Queen Victoria when you visit this house, which has remained unchanged for more than a century. Built in the late 1860s, this five-story Suffolk brick structure was the home of Linley Sambourne, a legendary cartoonist for Punch. In the entrance hall, you'll see the mixture of styles and clutter that typifies Victorian decor, with a plush portière, a fireplace valance, stained glass, and a large set of antlers vying for attention. The drawing room alone contains an incredible number of Victorian items. An actor in period costume leads tours. Allow about 1 1/2 hours for your visit. Insider's Tip: It's best to prebook your tour by phone. See the "Knightsbridge to Kensington" map.
