Things to do at Marble Hill House review
Marble Hill House is a Palladian villa located in Twickenham, London. It is a grade 1 listed building maintained by English Heritage. The house was built in the early 18th century and it was built for Henriette Howard the mistress of King George II when he was Prince of Wales.
The house and its gardens were intended as a retreat from crowded London. Its grand interiors include a fine collection of paintings. The house is currently closed for renovation work but it will open again in the future to the public. Today you can still enjoy the 66 acres of riverside parkland.
The house is set in extensive grounds known today as Marble Hill Park. The park has a number of leisure facilities including tennis courts and a fun children’s play area. The play area features a mini trampoline, a climbing area and a willow tunnel. The gardens have been carefully restored as part of their Marble Hill revived project. They also host a wide range of events in the parkland including performances and fun activities especially for kids.
