Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill Exhibition

February 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

£15

 A private guided tour of this exhibition in the stunning setting of Strawberry Hill has been arranged for FLH Members. 

This exhibition brings back to Strawberry Hill some of the most important masterpieces in Horace Walpole’s famous and unique collection for a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. Horace Walpole’s collection was one of the most important of the 18th century. It was dispersed in a great sale in 1842. For the first time in over 170 years, Strawberry Hill can be seen as Walpole conceived it, with the collection in the interiors as he designed it, shown in their original positions.

The Garden Cafe occupies the ambient Great Cloister of Strawberry Hill House and enjoys glorious views across Horace Walpole’s 18th Century naturalistic garden. The caterers, Bovingdons, are well known to Leighton House and complimentary hot drinks will be available on arrival.

You are invited in the first instance to bring one guest but numbers will be restricted to 16 so early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
