A day out at Marble Hill is a real treat as this beautiful Palladian villa is set in 66 acres of outstanding riverside parkland near Richmond in West London.
Marble Hill was built for the remarkable Henrietta Howard, mistress of King George II when he was Prince of Wales, and friend and confidante of some of the cleverest men in England. The house and gardens were intended as an Arcadian retreat from crowded 18th-century London. Its grand interiors also include a fine collection of early Georgian paintings. There can be few places in England which better recall the atmosphere of fashionable Georgian life.
Whilst the house is currently closed for renovation work, visitors can still enjoy the beautiful parkland and sports facilities. Take in the idyllic landscape on a picnic or dog walk with family and friends. Please note we are currently reviewing our dog policy, find out more here.
