Was Strawberry Hill House an expression of Horace Walpole’s sexuality? Can we understand more about Walpole’s sexuality by investigating the correspondence between his homosocial network of friends and acquaintances, and can we include this information in our interpretation of his house and collection? Our new LGBTQ Tours of the House seek to explore these and many other questions.
