Free Heritage Tours
Visiting Orleans House Gallery, it’s easy to be captivated by the beauty and grandeur of the Octagon Room and spend time taking in the wealth of art on display across the gallery.
Behind the decadent baroque architecture lies 300 years of history, people and stories that make up the narrative of Orleans House – a fascinating journey from the original house’s conception in the early 18th century as a riverside retirement home for James Johnston, secretary of state for Scotland under William III, to the heart of art and culture for the borough today.
We have free Heritage Tours on offer weekly that will allow you to immerse yourself in the past and gain an insight into what has shaped this building over the centuries. Our volunteer guides will paint you a picture of grand banquets, royal visits and much more!
Bring your friends and family as part of a day out, or if you’re part of a local group or organisation, why not include the gallery as part of your outings and activities?
Book today and get in on Twickenham’s best kept secret!
