Details

One of the last surviving country estates in London; Osterley is a spectacular mansion surrounded by gardens, park and farmland.
Created in the late 18th Century by Robert Adam for the Child family to entertain and impress their friends and clients; this 'palace of palaces' remains as impressive today.
Explore the classical grandeur of the Entrance Hall to the contrasting working environment of the servants quarters.
Outside, the gardens have been restored to their 18th Century glory offering a delightful retreat from urban life, perfect for picnics and leisurely strolls.
