It is considered to be one of the most important houses in England because it was here that Horace Walpole’s passion for Gothic became manifest and inspired the popular Gothic revival movement in architecture and the tradition in literature. The house is often described as one of the jewels in the stretch of properties running along the Thames from Hampton Court to Kew.

Enjoyed a couple hours meandering through this fascinating house. The docents were excellent, always ready with their many stories while always asking if we'd prefer to just look. While not as many of Walpole's original items it is still a fascinating display with much architectural interest. The cafe was very nice too. Staff in all areas very friendly.
Love the house. Staff were fascinating and helpful. Sunday manager was brilliant. Only improvements would be signage from the front of the house to the actual entrance. Weird unisex toilet with tiny sink that just splashed over the side and hygiene bin that was too close to the loo.
