Strawberry Hill House looks like a small fairy tale castle or a wedding cake you can walk into. Horace Walpole, son of our first prime minister, didn't care that much about accurate history; he was all about imagination, stories hinted at rather than told. At the time of writing, entry tickets are small booklets describing the rooms; these booklets are a great idea,useful at the time and sweet keepsakes for afterwards. Each room has a curator very ready to answer questions and tell stories about Horace and his house.The house is so pretty, the only disappointment might be that the rooms are almost empty; Walpole's collections are cherished and kept by Yale University. To me, the emptiness didn't detract at all, it just meant I could view the house clearly and enjoy its charm!
