Details

You can visit the Grotto on the mornings Thursday 12th April or Saturday 19th May from 10 am to 12:30 pm. We will also be open on Saturdays 9th, 16th and 23rd June 2018 during the Twickenham Festival.

Alexander Pope's Grotto is the last remaining part of his villa, which he built in 1720 on the banks of the Thames at Twickenham. Demolished in 1808, the villa was replaced and the property became the subject of much redevelopment over the following 200 years. In 1996 St James's Independent School for boys acquired the estate, remaining for 14 years.
