Strawberry Hill was originally a small cottage by the River Thames. Horace Walpole, son of Robert Walpole, rented the cottage in 1717 and subsequently bought it; he then set about enlarging the house and adding to the land. Walpole did not follow the eighteenth-century fashion of classical building, but sought his inspiration in medieval styles. Some of his contemporaries imitated his design, and so this house and the idea it embodied take their place in the history of architecture as Strawberry Hill Gothic. The site is now owned by St Mary’s University College, a Catholic degree-awarding college, and a centre for bioethics teaching and research. It is readily accessible from London Heathrow Airport.
Reservations have been made for 170 Conference participants to be accommodated in the College. Early booking is therefore strongly recommended. Meals can be provided for non-residential participants.
