About

We are delighted to announce a new series of Guided Landscape Tours of Strawberry Hill Garden and Pope’s Grotto. These tours cover the garden’s restoration and history, its significance as one of the first naturalistic landscape gardens in England, and its position in the Thames Arcadian landscape.


The Gothic Revival house and garden, a short walk from Pope’s Grotto via Radnor Gardens were created by Horace Walpole in the 18th century and have been open to visitors for over 250 years.

The tour also covers poet Alexander Pope and his connections with Twickenham. The Grotto is reopening for visitors on a limited number of days per year following our extensive programme of restoration and conservation works, which have revealed the original structure of the Grotto, along with evidence of water features referred to by Pope and 18th-century visitors.

This tour departs from Strawberry Hill House shop at 10 am.

We regret that due to the location of Pope’s Grotto, there is no disabled access. Please be aware that access to the Grotto is via stairs and that the Grotto floor is uneven. We request that visitors wear flat shoes.

Strawberry Hill House & Garden and Pope’s Grotto are partners in the London Luminaries, a collaborative network of heritage properties in West London that work together to educate and engage local communities.
