Strawberry Hill House

Situated just a 40 minute train ride from Waterloo, award winning Strawberry Hill is Britain's finest example of Gothic Revival architecture and interior decoration. 

It began life in 1698 as a modest house and was transformed by Horace Walpole, the son of England's first Prime Minister into a “little gothic castle”. Reopened to the public in 2010 after a £9 million restoration, today’s visitors have the opportunity to explore this unique heritage site.

With the aid of a guide book written by Horace himself, visitors can revel in the award-winning, extensive restoration of the interiors and contemplate the unique collection of Renaissance painted glass that magically light up the rooms.  

Full of surprises, eccentricities and colour, during a visit to Strawberry Hill you can expect the unexpected.
