Strawberry Hill House & Garden

Strawberry Hill House's story begins in 1747, when Horace Walpole discovered and purchased 'Chopp'd Straw Hall', one of the last remaining sites available on the banks of the Thames in fashionable Twickenham. He set about transforming what was then a couple of cottages into his vision of a 'little Gothic castle' with pinnacles, battlements and a round tower. Thus Strawberry Hill House was born - the House became a tourist attraction in Walpole's lifetime and beyond.

Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill: Masterpieces from Horace Walpole's Collection

Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill - 20 October 2018 - 24 February 2019
Open 7 days a week

This exhibition brings back to Strawberry Hill some of the most important masterpieces in Horace Walpole's famous and unique collection for a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. Horace Walpole's collection was one of the most important of the 18th century. It was dispersed in a great sale in 1842. For the first time in over 170 years, Strawberry Hill can be seen as Walpole conceived it, with the collection in the interiors as he designed it, shown in their original positions.
