Strawberry Hill

Literary Event, Thu 31 Oct - Fri 1 Nov 2019


268 Waldegrave Road,
Strawberry Hill,


Horace Walpole invites you to take a turn in his Little Gothic Castle at twilight.
On arrival you will be greeted at the castle gates by Philip Columb, Walpole’s Valet for a pre tour fizz. One of our guides will then collect you for a 60 minute tour of the house where you will be able to explore all that is gothic and gloomth at this most eerie time of year.
Those with a nervous disposition should heed this warning, keep your wits about you, as who knows which other characters from Walpole’s past might appear from shadows.
