Christmas Visit to Strawberry Hill, Twickenham

Tuesday, December 11th

Strawberry Hill has one of the most amazing interiors in England. Built by Horace Walpole, it is a famous example of the Gothic revival.  Walpole amassed a famous collection of furniture, paintings and objets d’art but sadly the collection was split up and sold off in 1842.

However, for a few short months, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the house refurnished with Walpole’s treasures. For the last four years, researchers have been tracking down the lost works of art and arranging for them to come back to Strawberry Hill.

Over 49 owners have agreed to lend for the exhibition so that the house can be seen with its fabulous works of art in their original home.
