Historic Garden Tours

Tuesday & Thursday at 11am and Wednesday at 2pm throughout the Summer.

Discover the fascinating history of what Horace Walpole, creator of Strawberry Hill House & Garden, called his "enchanted little landscape", set on the banks of the River Thames in Twickenham.

Our expert guides will lead you round the wooded glades and rolling lawns of Walpole's grade II listed garden and down to the riverside so you can appreciate the historic, social and geographical significance of its location.

Returning to the castle grounds via the sweeping Horseshoe Drive you’ll discover how the garden grew to fit the tastes and lifestyles of its subsequent owners, significant socialites of the 19th and 20th centuries, who developed it as a backdrop for solitary strolls and splendid soirees. You’ll walk across lawns where Pavlova danced, an elephant marched, and parties lasted long into the night – while at every turn a new vista of Walpole’s magnificent white Gothic castle will delight the eye as it has done for 270 years. No wonder he called Strawberry Hill his “land of beauties.”
