Online Talk: Horace Walpole and the 18th Century Gardens of Strawberry Hill.

Presented by Sandra Pullen, Strawberry Hill Guide

Monday 24 August at 10am 

Horace Walpole, the creator of Strawberry Hill House, was a keen amateur gardener whose own garden very much reflected the emerging trends of naturalism, and later romanticism in English 18th century garden design. During the 50 years Walpole owned Strawberry Hill, he commissioned several well-known artists to record his house and garden. This talk will use these eighteenth-century watercolours to chart the history and development of the gardens and illustrate how in 2010 they helped in its restoration.
