  • A good solid house with an interesting history. Easy enough to park near by at a cost of about £3.00. Entry is by guided tour only and on the tour we went on was so well subscribed that it was necessa...  more »

  • A beautiful place, but the rooms are mostly empty. Anyway the wall are covered with the most delicate wall papers in some rooms. The team is really helpful and nice, there is a thorough visit about the history of the place available for free is you are an English Heritage member. The house in itself is remarkable from the river path as its square white shape is striking in the middle of the grass! To be seen at night time too!
  • I'm very disappointed with this palace. Its closed due to restoration work.
  • . This is not exploited to its best advantage, and we enjoyed it less than we should have. Read on . . . For a start, it's hard to find. You arrive at the park, there is no sign telling you where it is, or indeed which of the two large imposing edifices at opposite ends is the one you've come to see. When we were redirected from the first mansion, we weren't sure that this was it, as there was no sign at all, nothing, to identify it. One side door was open, so we popped our head round and saw a souvenir shop. Yes, this is Marble Hill House, we were told. The house has some attractive features, and is filled with handsome furniture. It is well worth visiting to see this. However . . . We had a guided tour in a group of about a dozen people. The gentleman who led this had an encyclopedic knowledge of the house, its inhabitants and its times. Unfortunately this was rattled off at breakneck speed (almost impossible to understand to native speakers at many times) in a monotonous drone - drone - drone as we stood restlessly moving our feet and trying to look politely interested as he went on and on and on. This was frankly a major off-putting feature of the visit. Our guide was John. I understand that there are several. Might be worth checking which guide is allocated to which time/day when you book up. You cannot visit without the guide. The stars have been downgraded for the boredom effect of this. .
  • Marble Hill is an absolute gem - both from the architectural point-of-view and for the story of Henrietta Hobart. Our guide - a lovely Dutch lady - was an absolute fount of knowledge and she managed to enthuse our whole group, which consisted of every age group from pensioners to toddlers. I strongly advise anyone considering a visit to do so this summer so you will have the 'before and after' - restoration is due to being soon.
  • Marble Hill House located within Marble Hill Park. Period property set inside large open space with activity area.
