Event Details

£50, 10.30am-4pm

The day will consist of visits to three sites in the Twickenham area. Sandycombe Lodge (Turner’s House) was built by 1813 to the designs of England’s great landscape painter, J.M.W. Turner; working here as his own architect to create a quiet retreat for himself, away from the pressures of the London art world. Catherine Parry-Wingfield will lead this special tour. Pope’s Grotto Preservation Trust has just completed its restoration of Alexander Pope’s Grotto, the last remaining part of his famous villa and gardens, which he built in 1720 on the banks of the Thames. After lunch, we will visit Marble Hill House, winner of the 2022 Georgian Group Architectural Awards prize for Restoration of a Georgian Garden or Landscape. The house is now open after an extensive restoration project as part of Marble Hill Revived.  

 Lunch is included in this visit. This visit is for Georgian Group members only.
