Thomas Hardy’s pet cemetery, Max Gate
Max Gate is the Victorian villa which Thomas Hardy designed and built for himself in 1885. The House gives an insight into another facet of Hardy's genius - as an architect designing the environment in which he wished to live and write. It remained his home for over 40 years, until his death in 1928 and 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles','Jude the Obscure', and the 'Mayor of Casterbridge' were all written here, as well as much of his poetry.
Several pieces of Hardy's furniture are on display.
It now belongs to the National Trust and is open on Monday, Wednesday and Sunday, April-September.
