We privately tour the recently reopened Strawberry Hill House and learn about the extensive two-year restoration undertaken to return it to Horace Walpole’s original vision. Transformed in
1747 by Walpole into ‘a little Gothic castle’, Strawberry Hill is one of Britain’s finest examples of Georgian Gothic Revival architecture. On our guided tour, we visit the newly restored rooms and learn about the magnificent interiors and fascinating history of this unique building.
