Painted Glass Guided House Tours of Strawberry Hill House
Returning after the phenomenal success of the ‘Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill’ exhibition, the Painted Glass Guided Tours are available once more.
Once a month, specialist guides will give a tour of the remarkable painted glass in the House. Focusing on Horace Walpole’s magnificent collection of 16th and 17th Century glass, these fascinating tours look at how these pieces were manufactured, the lengths Walpole went in which to complete his collection and in some cases, how original pieces have been reproduced.
Tours will also look at particular themes within the glass and consider the context of their place at Strawberry Hill House.
The restoration of the glass has been generously supported by The Country Houses Foundation.
Tickets are £15 with concessions available for students and Friends of Strawberry Hill.
Tours leave at 10 am.
