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.
Visitors can enjoy the beautiful parkland and take in the idyllic landscape on a picnic or dog walk with family and friends. As part of the Marble Hill Revived Project, they have refurbished their café which is now open for takeaway and will initially be offering a selection of tasty takeaway treats, with an enhanced light lunch menu to follow.
