Van Gogh's House almost ready

 It wasnt that long ago that 87 Hackford Road was in a sad state of disrepair

But after a year long restoration the Grade II listed former residence of Vincent van Gogh is almost ready to open its doors.

Currently hanging in Tate Britain is an image of the house restored to its original 1870s condition by architect Livia Wang,
"Everyone is getting excited about the Van Gogh and Britain exhibition opening at the end of the month, and we're buckling ourselves in for a bit for a whirlwind."

If you want follow what's going on or book a tour of the house have a look at the new website vangoghhouse.co.uk or for more photos of the incredible restoration and what they found under the floorboards https://www.instagram.com/vangoghlondon/
