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. « less

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.

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

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.

The date of my visit was June 2009, not December 2010 - it didn't allow me to I came here as part of work/work placement with some children from St Stephen's Junior School after spending the afternoon in Marble Hill Park. The art on display was some photography by a local artist - it was lovely! I remember the gallery... More
