Booking House tickets online is the only way to guarantee entry on the day of your visit. However, if the day of your planned visit is booked out online, don’t worry. We hold half of our available tickets every day for visitors who do not book in advance. We have high numbers of visitors so we do recommend arriving early if you have not booked online.

Due to limited space and conservation, entry tickets are available to groups of 6 or less. If you are visiting Kettle’s Yard in a group larger than 6 please email mail@kettlesyard.cam.ac.uk or call 01223 748100. If you are a school or education group, please click here.

Please bring your booking reference with you either on a device or printed out. (We recommend to show your ticket on a screen to reduce paper waste.)

Please arrive at Kettle’s Yard 30 minutes before your entry time. Our time slots are every 10 minutes which means that we cannot allow late entry.

On arrival, go to the information desk where a Visitor Assistant will scan your booking reference, issue your ticket and check in bags and coats. You can ask our friendly Front of House team any questions before you enter and you can buy an illustrated House Guide which will tell you more about the artworks in each room. Please note there are no labels by artworks in the House.

Due to conservation and security reasons, no bags or large coats are allowed in the House.
