Become a Patron and support Strawberry Hill House & Garden

The highly acclaimed Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill exhibition shone a spotlight on Strawberry Hill House, inspiring an international outpouring of praise and confirming the historic significance of Horace Walpole’s ‘little gothic castle’.  To ensure we can keep the house and garden open and continue to inspire and delight generations of visitors to come, we are now excited to launch a new Patrons’ Scheme.

Patron Levels

Your patronage will also be vital in ensuring we can grow and develop our passionate audiences.

Once you join our family of Patrons, you will enjoy a range of benefits including behind the scenes tours and talks, private entertaining opportunities, and invitations to special events.

Where your money will go

The money raised by this important Patrons’ Scheme will create a fund for the Strawberry Hill Trust charity, which will enable the house and garden to remain open to the public. The income will also finance the repair and maintenance of our Grade I listed building, caring for the garden, supporting our education programme, building our collection and continued conservation needs.

If you are a UK tax payer, we can claim 25% gift aid on the donation part of your gift.
