Following Public Health England and Government advice on COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Strawberry Hill House is now closed until further notice.
You can still explore the House and our recent exhibition by downloading the ‘Strawberry Hill’ app for FREE from our Homepage.
The Sewing Bee was set up in 2011 to make historical costumes for children to dress up in while visiting the House. Since then the group has grown to help recreate Robert Walpole’s bed and costumes from portraits at the House. From the very beginning, the Bee has welcomed needleworkers of all abilities to come and learn from each other.
