The focal point is Cecil Beaton's famous circus bedroom, which has been painstakingly recreated. The original was a collaborative effort of talented friends such as Rex Whistler, and I have read much about it over the years in various books Nick Harvill Libraries sells. However, it was extraordinary to visit in person, as Cecil Beaton's bedroom is one of the last places I ever expected to find myself. The room evokes fantasy but not of the romantic kind. Perhaps it offers a partial explanation as to why Beaton was terribly unlucky in love.
