Horace Walpole was one of the most famous collectors of the eighteenth century. His Gothic Revival home at Strawberry Hill contained objects from different continents and cultures, collected because they were interesting and appealed to him. After his death, the contents were sold, and this exhibition seeks to reunite many of them and show them in their original locations. Queen Victoria later acquired a clock reputed to have belonged to Anne Boleyn, which will be returning to Strawberry Hill for the first time in over 150 years as part of this exhibition.
