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...more

This house of amazing architecture sits in this leafy suburb and is at home there. The house is mostly empty of furnishings, with just a few, to help you get the feel of what once was. The 'in room' information and the friendly room guides,...More

Would definitely recommend a visit here - stunning interiors, amazingly restored. Lovely to visit somewhere in London not overwhelmed with tourists. Staff are very friendly and informative. Visited as a National Trust Member for half price.

Stunning house tucked away but a wonderful visit. Greeted by friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic staff. I didn't know what to expect as I thought it was going to be an "empty house". The interior designs are stunning and breath-taking and recognisable from other historical places....More

Booked for a group of nine. I actually expected to be part of a public guided tour of the house but it doesn't work that way. Tour is self guided but there are very knowledgeable people based in each room and they explained what things...More
