Strawberry Hill House & Garden - Season's Greetings From Strawberry Hill House🎄


Season's Greetings from Strawberry Hill House

"The prettiest bauble you ever saw"

Dear Supporter,

It has been a very tough year for so many and Strawberry Hill House & Garden, like many heritage houses, has certainly had unexpected "storms to weather"

With the support and passion shown from so many of you, we have survived 2020 and we are looking forward to updating you with our plans for 2021 early in the New Year.

We have a programme planned that will recapture the creative spirit of Horace Walpole’s House and explore some of the many stories in Strawberry Hill’s remarkable history.

Horace Walpole wrote "my buildings, like my writings are of paper, and will blow away ten years after I am dead". Clearly that has not been the case, but as custodians of the House’s extraordinary legacy, we hope that you will be “blown away” when you visit in 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you when we are able to reopen and in the meantime, we wish you and your families a safe and happy Festive Holiday.

As ever, thank you for your ongoing support.
