Cafe Cake


Strawberry Hill House’s gift shop is open to the public during general opening hours. We offer a selection of books and souvenirs relevant to the House alongside a variety of gifts.

Northern Bloc ice cream is also available for purchase.



Strawberry Hill Garden & Café are completely wheelchair accessible, with smooth paths throughout and no stairs.

Inside the House the ground floor is accessible, and a lift gives access to the first floor, where the majority of our rooms are located. If you require use of the lift, please speak to a member of our team.

Unfortunately, the lift does not give access to the second floor and therefore three rooms are inaccessible by wheelchair: the Library, Horace Walpole’s Bedchamber, and the Plaid Bedchamber.

However, the Strawberry Hill House app (available through Google Play and the App Store) showcases all of the rooms through a virtual tour and our helpful room stewards are on hand to answer any questions.


We welcome non-commercial photography inside and outside the House, but ask that our visitors do not use tripods or flash photography. However, during exhibitions we have a no photography policy.


Unfortunately dogs are not permitted to enter the House and Gardens. Assistance dogs are welcome.


Pushchairs can be left in the buggy park next to the Visitor Centre, which is located next to the car park. If you are attending an education event in the house, pushchairs can be left in the foyer next to the Education Room.

BBQs, Ball Games, Bikes and Scooters

Unfortunately barbecues, ball games, bikes and scooters are not permitted in the Garden, as it is a historic landscape.
