Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill Exhibition - Masterpieces from Horace Walpole’s Collection

Wednesday 23 January 2019

Join us on a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Strawberry Hill House, Twickenham, to see over 150 objects that have been brought back temporarily to their original settings. We will have our own personal, curator-led tour.

This exhibition brings back to Strawberry Hill some of the most important masterpieces in Horace Walpole’s unique collection for a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. Horace Walpole’s collection was one of the most important of the 18th Century. It was dispersed in a great sale in 1842. For the first time in 170 years Strawberry Hill can be seen as Horace Walpole conceived it, with the collection in the interior as he designed it, shown in their original positions. The exhibition opens on 20th October and closes on 24th February.

We will depart by coach at 08.30 from Malmesbury long-stay car park. The tour of Strawberry Hill House will start at 11:00 and will last 90 minutes.

This will be followed by lunch which will comprise quiche and salad, a glass of wine, coffee and cake. The cost of lunch is included in the price.

We plan to leave Strawberry Hill at 14:30 to return to Malmesbury, and expect to arrive at about 16.30.

Cost - £67 per person which covers coach travel, the tour of Strawberry Hill House and lunch.

All of the tickets for this visit have been sold. If you wish to put your name on the waiting list please email Katharine Odlum - kj@odlumfamily.co.uk .
