Explore a magnificient Palladian Thames-side villa with its 66 acres of parkland. Enter into its Great Room and see the lavishly gilded decoration and architectural paintings by Panini. See the important collection of early Georgian paintings and furniture and the Lazenby Bequest Chinoiserie display. The inclusive audio-tour, exhibition and introductory film help to illustrate the history of this beautiful house, its residents and the surrounding area. Marble Hill House was built for the Countess of Suffolk, mistress of King George II, as a retreat from the rigours of court life. Today it offers a wonderfully atmospheric riverside backdrop for a programme of popular outdoor concerts.
The house is now owned by English Heritage, which acquired it in 1986 following the abolition of the Greater London Council. The house with its extensive grounds are known as Marble Hill Park and provide many leisure facilities including a cricket pitch and nets, tennis courts, a putting green and a children's play area.
Hammerton's Ferry links the gardens to Ham House on the opposite bank of the River Thames.
