Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum description

Museum / Wedding Venue / Business Meeting Rooms / Historic Venue / Team Building Venue

Medium (1-150)

East Cliff Hall was the home of Merton (1835-1921) and Annie Russell-Cotes (1835-1920). The building of East Cliff Hall was begun in 1897 and was completed in its first form in 1901. This was the same year that Queen Victoria died, making the house one of the last Victorian buildings ever built.

Merton and Annie filled this exotic seaside villa with beautiful objects from their travels across the world and lined the walls with a remarkable collection of British art. In 1908, the house and collection was donated to the people of Bournemouth.

The Russell-Cotes is a distinctive and memorable venue in which to host high-profile corporate events and intimate weddings, in a dramatic setting on the cliff-top overlooking Bournemouth's bay.
