  • I visited the house on 9th July 2016. I arrived at 10am at the stated opening time to find a notice saying it opens at 10 minutes before the first tour, which was at 10:30am. Our tour guide was obviously extremely knowledgeable about the house and its history, however he failed entirely to engage with his audience. He spoke at such speed, that even as a born English speaker I found it hard to make out what he was saying. We were deluged with dates, historical figures and places and in so much detail it was quite overwhelming. During the initial 25 minute discourse it was evident from other peoples expressions that they weren't enjoying the experience either. I felt sorry for a family of four overseas tourists who had paid a lot to see the house. They had asked if a translation was available at the start, but the eldest girl was told her English should be good enough to provide a translation for her family. This was definitely not the case. It would have been a lot better if we could have been given a more streamlined history, and then instead be given more time in each room to absorb the ambience and look at the artefacts in there. As usual there wasn't any true access for wheelchair users, and there is a wide staircase to the first floor where prams and buggies would need to be carried. Judging from other reviews I would say if you are a EH member it's worthwhile doing. If paying I would ask who is doing the tour before you commit. Definitely could do better.
  • Great open space ideal for picnics, or there's a teahouse for those who enjoy a bit of afternoon tea. The house itself is by guided tour only but the insides are very interesting, especially for those interested in architecture.
  • Very nice park around a 17th century manor. The access to the park and surrounding areas is free to public. Nice stroll down the Thames to Richmond Bridge.
  • Visited on Saturday 27th of June 2015. Wonderful guided tour by a knowledgeable historian who knew how to keep an audience enthralled. An intelligent and thoughtful insight into the history of the house, associated historical events, related art works and architectural details. As someone who works in the Arts, I appreciated both the delivery and the content greatly. A beautiful place to visit, you will not be disappointed.
  • Marble Hill House only has entry via guided tour. It's a huge estate and the story behind it is very interesting. It's a bit far out but I would recommend you tackle Ham House and Garden at the same time as it's close by. There is a small cafe in Marble Hill house beside the park to chill so you can spend the whole afternoon there.
