Dimbola Lodge Galleries and Photographic Museum
Dimbola Lodge,Freshwater.JPG

Dimbola Lodge was the home of the celebrated Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. Saved from the bulldozers literally at the last minute, Dimbola has since been described as an "unexpected delight" and the "best kept secret on the Isle of Wight".

There's lots to see at Dimbola. We have permanent exhibitions of Julia Margaret Cameron's work, a changing programme of contemporary photography and art exhibitions, a History of IOW Pop Festivals, the Jimi Hendrix Garden, and the Cameron Tearooms which is renowned for high quality locally sourced food and homemade cakes.

We also have a small Gift Shop where you can buy a memento of your visit, and don't leave without a free photograph of yourself taken in our Olympus costume room!
