Strawberry Hill House


Created by Horace Walpole in the 18th century, Strawberry Hill is internationally famous as Britain's finest example of Georgian Gothic revival architecture. It also inspired the first gothic novel The Castle of Otranto.

The Strawberry Hill Trust, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, has recently undertaken a £9 million repair and restoration of Walpole's villa and garden and Strawberry Hill re-opened to the public in late 2010 following this two year long restoration.
