Alexander Pope's Grotto
Alexander Pope's Grotto is the last remaining part
of his villa, which he built in 1720 on the banks of
the Thames at Twickenham. Demolished in 1808,
the villa was replaced and the property became
the subject of much redevelopment over the
following 200 years. The grotto is now owned by
Radnor House School.

Turner's House in Twickenham
offers a unique insight into the life of
Britain's greatest landscape painter,
JMW Turner. Restored to create the quiet,
domestic space that Turner used as his retreat
from the London art world, Turner's House offers
a rare opportunity to experience the private life of
this great artist.
Designed by Turner and completed in 1813,
the house was a quiet retreat, away from the
pressures of the London art world, to which he
would invite friends and indulge in his passion for
fishing. The house is as idiosyncratic and unique
as any of Turner's paintings.
