About
Visiting Strawberry Hill is a truly theatrical experience. On approach to the building it is immediately apparent from the whitewashed walls and crenelations that this is no ordinary stately home. Once inside the visitor will find the rooms...more

This is a hidden gem in the city. They accept the Natiinal Art Pass for 50% off. There isn’t much to the gardens. A kitchen garden. But it was very hot the day we visited and didn’t seek out any other gardens. The docents are...More

I was initially disappointed with the garden ( as there isn't really one). But the house was astonishing.

Quirky, and definitely not designed by an architect, this little castle-house is the starting point for all things gothic. Although the old bits are only skin-deep, often painted, Walpole created in his little villa a fascinating and odd masterpiece. Very helpful guides, all volunteers, and...More

This great house built by Walpole has had a rebirth after so many years. It is a delightful gothic retreat set amongst gardens. Close to St Mary's College and the river thames. One can also hire out for special occasions at rteasonable rates and there...More

The house belonged to the son of the prime minister. It is a very weird place with gothic decoration. No surprise that Walpole wrote gothic novels. It was a pleasure palace before the Royal Pavilion. The house was restored a few years ago and some...More

Amazing. The guy who designed it made a lot of mistakes. Some of the high windows will be impossible to clean without a ladder. I liked the stained glass. Apparently he'd bought it as a job lot 2nd hand. Nice to see how the building...More

Visited here after a morning at Richmond Park and lunch at Petersham Nurseries Café (separate reviews). A lovely historic site that I'm sure many people don't make it to, but should. The house is spectacular, with gold and ornate flocked wallpaper, fireplaces based on tombs...More

We spent a lovely sunny afternoon at Strawberry Hill House & Garden. The building is lovely to look at from the outside. The restoration work carried out to the interior of the house is quite phenomenal. Marvelous to see the richness of the fabrics and...More

The house is fascinating however, there all too many volunteers hanging around fussing visitors or gossiping in small groups which is all a bit irritating. Don’t be put off however, as the building is extraordinary.
