Literary Landmarks: Henry James

Henry James House Lamb House is an 18th-century house situated in Rye, East Sussex, England, and in the ownership of the National Trust. The American novelist Henry James discovered Rye and Lamb House quite by chance whilst visiting an architect friend. He was enchanted by the house and delighted when the chance came to lease it in 1897 and purchase it two years later. James wrote three of his novels here, The Wings of the Dove, The Ambassadors and The Golden Bowl. He wrote in the garden room, a self-contained building next to the house built in 1743 as a separate banqueting room and destroyed in 1940 during a bombing raid. After James's death Lamb House became the residence of author E.F. Benson
