Orleans House Gallery now open!
As of Thursday 1 March Orleans House Gallery will be open 10am–5pm Tuesday to Sunday.
Following the Transforming Orleans House restoration project, made possible by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the main gallery is now more accessible with a new entrance, lift to the upper floors, and a new public study gallery featuring permanent displays from the Richmond Borough Art Collection.
The Grade I listed James Gibbs Octagon Room has also been restored to its second paint colour scheme. A copy of the Panini painting which would have originally hung in the room, has been installed, along with a replica carved limewood chandelier gilded with 23.5 carat gold leaf.
Visit the remodelled spaces and learn about the history of Orleans House through interactive displays and animations; take a look the exhibitions in the West Wing and Stables Gallery and browse our new gallery shop for something to take home.
