The park surrounding Marble Hill House is a huge expanse of well maintained lawns which are fantastic in the summer for picnics, playing football and other games, sunbathing and just generally relaxing in the sun. The view of the House is fantastic to enjoy on a summer's day and to keep children enteratained and quiet there is also a great playground. There are even trees for shade and public toilets by the House- everything you need for a full day out. It is a shame the road is so near, however trees offer coer from it so it does not disturb too much.
While we were unable to visit the house itself as the tours are only available twice a day on a Saturday, and in the AM only, we really enjoyed wandering the lovely park-like grounds of this beautiful Georgian home. From the majestic and huge trees, to the quirky grotto, to the football pitches being greatly enjoyed by some local children, this place is just wonderful! A easy walk over the bridge from Richmond and down the riverside path, or easily accessible from the little ferry adjacent to Ham House, if you're enjoying the loveliness of Richmond it's fully worth a jaunt to the Twickenham side of the river to see Marble Hill House!
