A Guide to Places with Pictures and Stories from Life

Strawberry Hill House – Interiors

The interiors of Strawberry Hill House are so well refurbished, that it seems waiting for its first occupants. Whilst the house has few artifacts at present, the trust is raising funds to restore at least some of Horace Walpole’s massive collection.  For pictures of the castle-like exterior, history and essential information for visitors please click here.

These pictures are not necessarily in the order they were taken, do not include all the rooms and it is essential to use the guide-book to ensure seeing everything.

It is worth magnifying some of these pictures, especially the stained glass.  To do so please click on a picture and then again to magnify and then use your browser’s “back” key to return here..  Enjoy 🙂 .

    • Newly opened and National Trust policy does seem to be shifting a bit. 🙂

  4. We just visited Aspley House and I was very careful not to read any directions. I managed to click three frames of the Dining Hall before the matroness descended. I do plan to post. Don’t tell anyone. I’ve been having a ball with the fox family that lives in Montague Gardens. Two adults, two kits, and magpies to harass them. Heavenly and in central London!

    • A pity about places like Apsley House, but there are plenty more places and attitudes are improving. 🙂
