Dimbola

Dimbola was the home and workplace (1860 – 1875) of the celebrated Victorian photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron. It now houses a tearoom, museum and galleries dedicated to her life and work and is preserved by the Julia Margaret Cameron Trust. Once two adjacent dwellings in the rural idyll of Freshwater Bay, the Camerons built a central tower to form their new home. The name ‘Dimbola’ was chosen by the Camerons after the tea and coffee plantations they owned in Dimbula, Sri Lanka. Inside the house now are preserved features including Gothic carvings, William Morris wallpaper, Julia’s original design stairway, Victorian glass and a re-creation of her bedroom.

"The crew have found the Isle of Wight a really pleasant place to work and I doubt that they've missed sitting in traffic jams on the M25...!"

"I would wholeheartedly recommend Lobster Locations to any visiting Location Manager. Lisa has treated us with speed, friendliness and fairness throughout and she pulled several locations out of the hat for us. Her location owners clearly trust her and she knows a lot about the island as a whole. She's been a true ally and she makes me hope that I'll be back to film on the Isle of Wight again soon."
