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 in various books on the Nick Harvill Libraries shelves. 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 so unlucky in love.
