About

A unique & creative day out in Surrey

Watts Gallery – Artists' Village is a unique art gallery and heritage site consisting of historic buildings, learning studios for art and pottery workshops, an award-winning Tea Shop and beautifully landscaped woodlands and grounds. Conveniently located just 40 minutes from London, the Artists' Village is an Arts & Crafts gem tucked away in the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

First opened to the public in 1904, Watts Gallery was the first art gallery purpose-built for the work of a single artist, George Frederic Watts (1817-1904) - known as England's Michelangelo by his contemporaries. Along with his wife Mary Watts, a talented ceramicist, designer and artist in her own right, they founded the Artists' Village.

Watts Gallery and Watts Studios are open Tuesday to Sunday (plus Bank Holidays) from 11am - 5pm.
Watts Chapel is open daily from 9am - 5pm.
The Visitor Centre, shop and Tea Shop are open daily from 10.30am - 5pm.
