I came to Rippon Lea primarily to see the latest exhibition Nightlife- a fashion exhibition of the 1920s and 30s. This historic house is the perfect setting for it, with the exhibition covering both floors and many rooms. Gorgeously laid out and displayed with evocative lighting to emphasise the night lights or lack of, I really enjoyed it. If you were brave enough, you could even dress up in pieces from the period and take photos of yourself! I took the opportunity to also take a wander in the beautiful gardens with their enormous mature trees and expansive lawn. I love Rippon Lea - it's an absolute treasure.
