Osterley Park and House is a beautiful 18th-century mansion set in more than 350 acres of parkland. Osterley House, with its string of state rooms, was built by Sir Thomas Gresham, founder of the Royal Exchange, and later remodelled by Robert Adam. In the grounds, restored in the 18th-century style, there are two temples and a lake as well as tea rooms and a farm shop selling home-grown produce. A restoration project on the gardens is under way, beginning with a recreation of former resident Mrs Child’s flower garden. Frsh vegetables are available to buy from the Osterley Park and House farm shop. Digital tours using audio-visual handsets allow visitors to explore the house with audio commentary and images from Osterley's past. There are two tours – one for adults, one for families.

Beautiful house and lovely woodlands to explore. The house is very ornate, exactly as it has been since the 18th century, and the volunteers have so much insight to give into the architecture and decor. There's a very nice cafe housed in the old stables and after lunch or tea the gardens and woods behind the house make for a great place to walk or sit and read a book.

Lovely House with beautiful Robert Adam features, excellent grounds and being close to London is an advantage.
