“An 18th century Gothic castle in Twickenham will open its doors to the public after a £9m restoration project.

Strawberry Hill House, in Waldegrave Road, will officially open to visitors on Saturday after a two-year long restoration on the first phase of the building.

The Grade I listed building was built by the writer and son of Britain’s first Prime Minister, Horace Walpole, between 1747 and 1792 as a Gothic fantasy. It is one of Britain’s finest examples of Georgian Gothic Revival architecture.”
