About the House
Originally built in 1582 as a private home for three-times Lord Mayor of London, Sir Richard Martin, Lauderdale House in Highgate is now a community hub, welcoming over 65,000 visitors every year. Each year we host a wide range of cutting-edge exhibitions and events, bringing the brightest new talent and high-profile established performers to north London. Lauderdale House also boasts a blooming programme of creative classes for both adults and children and can be hired for weddings, receptions and parties.
Lauderdale House will be refurbished from October 1 until the Summer 2016. We will be holding a series of Pop-Up events locally during this time.
Our galleries will be open until Sunday 20 September and the café will remain open until Monday 21 September. We still have summer classes and events happening in August and September, so please do continue to visit. The entire house will be completely closed to the public from Thursday 1 October.
The transformation begins this summer!
