Take a walk around the house that Grayson Perry designed

It is a conceptual holiday home, designed by award-winning Grayson Perry, and it has been nicknamed the "gingerbread house".

The building, in Wrabness, Essex, is inspired by a mythical Essex woman called Julie.

Perry designed the building, known as Julie's House, as his homage to the "single mums in Dagenham, hairdressers in Colchester, and the landscape and history of Essex".

BBC Arts Correspondent Will Gompertz went for a look around.
