The aim is make Marble Hill a natural destination for all visitors to Twickenham and Richmond seeking to understand the history the area or simply to enjoy its beauty and amenity. Set in 66 acres of open parkland beside the river Thames at Twickenham, in the London Borough of Richmond, it is a classic example of an English Palladian villa. This beautiful house signalled the start of the whole Georgian architectural style which swept this country. Together with Chiswick House, which was being built at the same time, they fuelled the appreciation of a classical style which spread to America and around the world. Their influence continues to this day.
