Welcome to the Ken Stradling Collection

Ken Stradling’s is a very personal collection, built up since the late 1940s, resulting in a remarkable collection of 20th and 21st century ceramics, furniture, glass and much else. It extends over three floors of our building in Park Row.

An integral part of the Ken Stradling Collection is the Design Study Centre on the ground floor. Here you can view a regularly changing selection of work from the Collection and leaf through books from the library. We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Gane Trust whose generous support has enabled us to open regularly to the public on Wednesdays. Visits to the collection as a whole and at other times of the week can be arranged by appointment. See Visit page for more information.

Alternatively, you can view 60 of the most important items from the Collection on this website. This will be added to from time to time. Visit our Blog for more discussion of individual pieces and other things of interest.
