Apparently the summer home of the son of the first prime minister in GB, he lived well! Congrats out to the Friends of Strawberry Hill House for steady restoration and obvious adoration in getting the house back to it's former glory. Albeit there is not much furniture, the individuals in each room and the tapestry of history bring the house to life. Our kids played with the curtain clothes and looked the part in ancient history. It's an interesting tour through the styles and activities of the very well to do of it's time. You have to wonder how rich and powerful these people were to be able to build such a folly of a home in it's time. The grounds are worth while wandering around, we were lucky on a beautiful summers day. We had lunch in the restaurant which had a challenging menu for our kids, and challenging price tag for the parents. The food was nice, but maybe should be reconsidered with respect to pricing it seems steep for the current environment. I could see many had brought picnics obviously aware of the steep pricing. I would have rated visit as excellent but for the pricing and menu of the restaurant. The shop is great and has unusual items which is great to see compared to standard uK high street shops. Will visit again but will bring our own lunch. Have alook at the flower bedding, it's great, obviously someone has good green fingers. There was one plant I had never seen before, red one with bell shaped flowers, anyone know what it is?
