Covid-19 Statement

Dear Visitor,

Our priority i​s to protect the health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff, volunteers and the wider community.

Following Public Health England and Government advice on COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Strawberry Hill House, Cafe & Shop is now closed until further notice.

Our beautiful Garden​, now blooming with spring flowers, is open daily free of charge – and we hope offers a place of well being and ​respite at this time, whilst observing social distancing measures.

For general enquiries, events and future tour bookings you can still contact us on and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

While the ​House is closed we still have lots of ways you can interact with Horace Walpole’s ‘little gothic castle’. You can explore the ​House and our recent five-star exhibition by downloading the ‘Strawberry Hill’ app for FREE on both IOS and Android phones. You can also follow us on social media via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for stories and information on the ​House and ​Garden.

We will open our castle doors again as soon as we can and ​we look forward to welcoming visitors back to the ​House.

As always, thank you for your ongoing support.

The Strawberry Hill House Team

During the closure of the House we are in need of support more than ever.  We rely on self-generated income, such as ticket sales, and fundraising to maintain and keep the House running for visitors. If you would consider making a donation, no matter how small, it will make a big difference to the future of Strawberry Hill. Thank you.

Strawberry Flower Festival online

From the 12th – 13th June 2020, the Strawberry Hill Flower Festival curated by Floral Creatives Leigh Chappell & Janne Ford, returned for its second year. Due to Covid-19 and the subsequent House closure, the team at Strawberry Hill worked with Leigh & Janne to curate an online flower festival. Over two days audiences were invited to sign up to a range of online sessions including workshops, behind-the-scenes tours and demonstrations from some of the UK’s leading floral artists and growers.

Although this years festival is now over, you can still find films, photographs and other content on flowers and growing across social media by searching the hashtag: #StrawberryFlowerFestival. Along with some specially curated films on our Flower Festival page.
