LGBTQ+ Heritage Tours

About

As part of LGBTQ+ History Month this February, Strawberry Hill is hosting a series of LGBTQ+ tours. Each tour will seek to explore more about Horace Walpole’s sexuality by investigating the?correspondence between his network of friends and acquaintances, and how this might inform our?interpretation of his house and collection.?

As visitors are led through the House, our tour guides will reveal how Strawberry Hill enabled Walpole to build a unique identity for himself by his radical use of architecture, design, and antiquarianism. Learn also, how Walpole's famous and prolific correspondence, with his extensive network of friends and acquaintances, bring his colourful times to life.
