Become a Patron and support Strawberry Hill House & Garden

Strawberry Hill House & Garden, created by Horace Walpole in the 18th century, has been open to visitors for over 250 years. This extraordinary building is internationally famous as Britain’s finest example of Georgian Gothic revival architecture and home to an important collection of paintings and objects.

Patrons play a key role in bringing the rich experience of the house and garden to life for visitors and in preserving it for future generations. The Patrons’ fund is vital and will help with building our collection, the important conservation, maintenance of the house & garden and our learning and community outreach programmes.

Horace Walpole was a leading patron of the arts, as were subsequent owners Lady Waldegrave and the Stern family. As a Patron you will be joining a community of important supporters safeguarding the splendour of this historic gem. 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.
