Marble Hill House was built between 1724 and 1729 for Henrietta Howard, mistress of George II, who later became Countess of Suffolk. In this idyllic Thames-side setting she entertained many of the poets and wits of the age, including Pope, Swift and Horace Walpole.
The villa was designed by Colen Campbell under the direction of Lord Herbert, with its perfect proportions inspired by the work of the 16th century Italian architect Palladio.
This guidebook includes a tour and history of the house and ground. It gives a fascinating glimpse into the life of Mrs Howard and her circle, shedding new light on the history of this English Palladian villa and its gardens beside the Thames.
