Strawberry Hill House is delighted to have been awarded a grant from Arts Council England and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, to help us maintain the fabric of this significant building and ensure the quality of care for our growing art collection, enriching our offer for visitors and our community.

Strawberry Hill House is acknowledged as one of the most important and influential examples of gothic revival architecture. The house was originally created by Horace Walpole between 1747 and 1790. A major restoration project restored the house to its late 18th Century glory and it was opened to the public in 2010.

This grant, awarded as part of the Museum Estate and Development Fund (MEND), will allow for urgent works to take place over the next two years, including essential external repairs and decoration to the intricate pinnacles and crestings and fragile rendered walls that make Strawberry Hill House’s architecture so iconic. The infrastructure of the House will also be updated to enable us to be more energy efficient and offer a more accessible visitor experience in this Grade I listed building.
