Overview

Visiting Strawberry Hill is a truly theatrical experience. On approach to the building it is immediately apparent from the whitewashed walls and crenelations that this is no ordinary stately home. Once inside the visitor will find the rooms magically lit by a unique collection of renaissance glass with a gloomy castle-like hall and grey gothic staircase leading dramatically to the magnificence of the gallery and state apartment. Between 2007 and 2015 the structure of the building was saved from ruin and the eccentric interiors have been fully restored to their late 18th century style. The restoration project has won major awards from the European Union, the Georgian Group, RICS and RHS, and is shortlisted as 2015's Best Tourism Project at the British Guild of Travel Writer's Awards. As well as guided tours and self-guided visits, we also offer events and family activities as well as an excellent cafe and shop.

Due to Waterloo station railway works, we decided to reverse our plan for the day and walk the Thames Path from Turnham Green (Chiswick) to Twickenham. We had intended to begin with our visit to Strawberry Hill House. Instead our visit began at 3pm after...More

Visited here to have afternoon tea with a friend, a little disappointed, the sandwich bread was stale, they had run out of scones by 3pm, and the cakes were also a bit dry, but we didn't pay the full price as a result, and the...More

A beautiful building with a fasinating interior albeit there is very little by way of furniture or other objects so some might find it a challenging visit if they arrive unaware. The room guides are a wealth of knowledge which they enjoy imparting and the...More

The area of Twickenham by the river and the grounds of Strawberry Hills appear quite serene and lovely...a nice retreat of sorts from the hustle of London. However, reaching this place in rain from Richmond near the train station was not straightforward. The street signs...More

Thanks very much for your comments - and indeed for visiting. Transport can always be an issue. An alternative way is to hop on a train to Strawberry Hill station: trains are a couple an hour, and on a loop line just 40 minutes or...More

Really interesting to see Strawberry Hill House and learn about it's history. The rooms are basically unfurnished but that gives you more room to enjoy them. The stained glass windows are really something, and if you're lucky enough to go on a sunny day, you...More

Had a good look around the house and grounds. Interesting beautiful place. It was the festival day and the sun was out to which made it look even better. Price to view the house was half price but still costly.More
