Strawberry Hill House is Britain’s finest example of Georgian Gothic Revival architecture on the banks of the Thames in Twickenham. It was the summer residence of Horace Walpole, an 18th Century writer and art historian who was the son of Britain’s first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole. Largely designed by Walpole’s circle of friends, known as the ‘Committee of Taste’; he allowed four visitors a day, with tours conducted by his housekeeper.
