Explore Horace Walpole's Lost Treasures 
this Festive Season!

Our Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill exhibition is now well and truly underway. We have welcomed nearly 10,000 people through our doors at Strawberry Hill House, and have received some fantastic press coverage and reviews, here are just a few:

'Destined to be a hit'  Luxury Telegraph  
'Strawberry Hill for ever' The Times
'A confection packed with curiosities' Financial Times
5 star review from Evening Standard
4 star review from The Guardian 

There are lots of ways that you can enjoy the exhibition, whether that be our general admission available 7 days a week or a guided tour on Saturdays and Sundays. We also offer weekly Friday Late tours which open from 6pm - 9pm (last tour 8.30pm), along with some special Friday Lates which offer guests a more immersive way to explore the exhibition. This includes a meeting with Housekeeper Margaret and Cardinal Wolsey for a theatrical Gothic encounter this Friday, 23 November. And leading up to Christmas, we also have a Christmas Choir and Carols with Mince pies and mulled wine on Friday 14 December. 

Our annual Christmas Fair also returns this Sunday 25 November, offering some beautiful bespoke Christmas gifts to buy for family and friends in the stunning Waldegrave suite, part of St Mary's University adjacent to the house.

We look forward to welcoming you to the house leading up to the festive season!
