Stroll along a peaceful riverside road into secluded woodland gardens, to find a stunning 18th century interior design - and the principal art gallery for the borough of Richmond upon Thames. Orleans House has a rich and vibrant history, from the baroque Octagon room, which was designed by renowned architect James Gibbs, to a main gallery which hosts five temporary exhibitions each year - ranging from the historical to the contemporary.

Exhibition on team spirit with items on cricket, hockey and rugby. An excellent choice for tourists. Child friendly with a cafe on site. Parking available for free. It is gallery space that is also used for weddings and talks.

We visited the special exhibition in the stables put on by children (with help) for children. We were with twin grandchildren aged 4 and they absolutely loved the displays which included a London bus, a balloon, a boat on a river from which one could fish and a noisemaking static bike. We spent a happy hour there, had a good... More

You must try the Orleans House café! It is in the old stable block behind Orleans house on the banks of the Thames and surrounded by trees. To call it ‘a hidden gem’ is no exaggeration. There are two big reasons to go: the food is fresh, creative and delicious. And the service is warm and welcoming. The menu changes... More

The cafe never ceases to amaze me as the food is fabulous but more than that the welcome is superb. It is very wheelchair friendly and the service is just great. The woman who runs it gives a really personal service.

This gallery hold interesting exhibitions. The one I went to see was Lacemakers. This was a collection of works either Lace or Lace inspired by international artist. The work varied from lacemakers using traditional stitch but presenting them in modern form to instillations from recycled materiel and ceramics.

I had been passed Orleans house when visiting Marble House, but didn't have time to go in that time. They had the WWI exhibition on it was interesting and a bit about the house - it was bit like gunnersbury park house (needs money for restoration) - although the area felt safer and better than gunnersbury. The garden had a... More

Curious little venue with a couple of spaces for art. Showing local artist work in an interesting building with a lovely ceiling. Close to the riverside but access possible even at high tide without getting your feet wet. Worth a stroll along in this tranquil area. Shop has some really different artisan items.

By pure chance we saw the Richmond Literary Festival advertise a lecture at the Orleans House Stables this last Sunday. A bit tricky to find even if you use your satnav but the locals were very helpful to point the way. Tucked away and hidden Orleans House Gallery and Stables is a hidden gem. They have a very good lecture... More

Un undiscovered gem, hidden away in its own walled garden by Twickenham Riverside. Current show Madge Gill: Medium & Visionary is extraordinary, not to be missed. Includes her masterpiece, a 36 x 5 ft long pen & calico drawing produced in a state of trance. The Stables coffee shop is a delight too, great cakes and other treats, and healthy... More

Owned we think by the council. Good old building. Some baroque interior decoration and a few good pictures. Beware only open from April and closes in September. Not a bad site either.
