Summer Programme 2019:  Our summer programme is in the course of being finalised. We have a visit booked to Westwell Garden, near Burford on June 27th. This is one of the most beautiful gardens in Gloucestershire and rarely open to the public.

Visits are also being arranged to Kings Cross to see the striking new canalside development with its amazing modern architecture and Llanthony Priory Seconda at Gloucester, recently restored to a very high standard while Tim Mars Is planning another of his legendary trips to Newport. And there is more in the pipeline awaiting final confirmation including our entry for Heritage Open Day.

Events Diary: We have talks throughout the year, supplemented by visits in summer and a special Christmas event each winter. Many of our visits are to buildings not otherwise open to the public. Note that the default Diary only shows future events – for previous events follow the links lower down the page.  If few or no events are listed below it will be because we are finalising the new season’s programme (see notes above).

Christmas Visit to Strawberry Hill, Twickenham

December 11, 2018

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.
