Smallhythe Place

Built in the early 16th-century when Smallhythe was a thriving shipbuilding port, Smallhythe Place was purchased by renowned Victorian actress Ellen Terry in 1899. Her daughter Edith Craig set up the museum in 1929 which houses a fascinating personal and theatrical collection. The collection highlights Ellen Terry's extraordinary career and unconventional personal life.

Smallhythe Place includes a beautiful cottage garden and a charming 17th-century thatched Barn Theatre which provides an opportunity to attend a show.
