Welcome to Strawberry Hill House & Garden, we are now open, Sunday – Thursday. 

Following government advice about Covid-19, although legal restrictions are being removed, Strawberry Hill House & Garden are committed to prioritising the safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff. Therefore, we continue to ask visitors to please book ahead, with revised time slots to help us stagger numbers entering the House and ensure that social distancing can be maintained.

We hope these measures will offer everyone a safe and welcoming environment, to enjoy Horace Walpole’s splendid ‘little gothic castle’.
