Strawberry Hill House & Garden - Spring Season Opening


Open Sunday - Wednesday
From the 1 April 2019
Come and explore Horace Walpole's incredible collection of over 250 exquisite pieces of glass this Spring! Walpole appreciated the glass for its beauty but also saw it as an intricate part of the decoration of Strawberry Hill including the effects of sunlight in some rooms and the creation of darkness in others. This season, visitors will have an opportunity to gain a greater insight into the stories behind this unique collection of glass.
Throughout April we also have a range of events coming up to suit all ages, including our Garden Easter Trail for children, our new Twilight Tours and next Gothic Bookclub!
