Visiting Strawberry Hill is a truly theatrical experience. On approach to the building it is immediately apparent from the whitewashed walls and crenelations that this is no ordinary stately home.
Once inside the visitor will find the rooms magically lit by a unique collection of renaissance glass with a gloomy castle-like hall and grey gothic staircase leading dramatically to the magnificence of the gallery and state apartment.
Between 2007 and 2010 the structure of the building was saved from ruin and thirteen of the most important rooms were restored. Now a new grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund has allowed us to restore five additional rooms through 2014 for opening in March 2015. As work progresses this year these additional rooms will on occasion be open for the public to view.
As well as guided tours and self-guided visits, we also offer events and family activities as well as an excellent cafe and shop.
