The Walpole Cabinet, designed by Horace Walpole
The Walpole Cabinet, designed by Horace Walpole

This is the first major exhibition on Horace Walpole, the most important English 18th-century collector, and brings together many of his most remarkable objects. Amongst other achievements, Walpole was the first to systematically assemble the visual evidence of English history. This exhibition recreates Walpole's pioneering collection in the context of the rooms at Strawberry Hill, where visitors experienced a journey through ancient and modern British history and European art.
