http://www.russellcotes.com/ Visit the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum: this unique visitor attraction in Bournemouth, on the south coast of England, is one of the most fascinating historic houses in England. In 1901, Merton Russell-Cotes gave his wife Annie a dream house on a cliff-top, overlooking the sea. It was an extraordinary, extravagant birthday present -- lavish, splendid, and with a touch of fantasy. They 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, creating a unique atmosphere in a most dramatic setting. A home, an art gallery, and a museum. Then they sealed it in time, and gave it to the future. Welcome to the Russell-Cotes.
