History

This beautiful Gothic Revival Villa was, for many years, just a modest cottage in Twickenham. But in 1749, Horace Walpole, son of England's first prime minister, transformed it into a grand mansion.

It was within the walls of Strawberry Hill House that the same Horace Walpole was inspired to write the first Gothic novel. The villa was ahead of its time and permanently impacted the way both architecture and literature was viewed.

It has lately been restored by the Strawberry Hill Trust, with support from a number of other foundations, to the cost of £10 million. It then opened to the public in October 2010 and has since been host to a number of spectacular weddings!

Internationally renowned for its Gothic features, this beautiful venue is available to be privately yours, no matter what time of year. Offering exclusive hire, this simply gorgeous wedding venue is perfect for literary loving couples who want a truly romantic and fairy tale setting for their big day.

  • Emily McMahon - September 2015

    My wife and I had the most perfect day at SHH. The venue won us over years ago and we live locally and had always said when we got married we'd want it to be somewhere super special. What could be more special than Strawberry Hill House? Valerie helped us every step of the way with clear and regular communications. She helpfully recommended caterers for our pre-drinks reception and provided volunteers throughout the day to assist my wife and our other guests. With so many beautiful rooms to explore your guests will enjoy exploring and the gardens are spectacular! I cannot recommend this location highly enough.

  • Ade & Rana - August 2015

    We had our wedding in August. The house was the perfect choice for us. We fell in love with its charm and history from the moment we saw it. It seemed so well looked after the loved and what better place to share our own love. What confirmed it for us was the warmth of the staff and how welcome we felt. No other place we visited made us feel so welcome and so special. The staff went out of their way to facilitate things for us. We felt like they were sharing in our job and excitement and making us feel like we were among family!

    Valerie and her team were amazing. With their meticulous support our wedding was perfect in every way. The house was stunning and the grounds are beautiful. Emily supplied delicious canapes. You would be mad not to get married there!
