Strawberry Hill Residents’ Association
Strawberry Hill is a community in West London on the north bank of the River Thames in the old county of Middlesex. In 1747, Horace Walpole moved to this area, acquiring a house which he developed into his “little gothic Castle”. He named it Strawberry Hill and the immediate area is named after his creation. A good starting point for exploring the rich history of this small area is our History page.
