Orleans House has a rich and vibrant history, from the baroque Octagon room, which was designed by renowned architect James Gibbs, to a main gallery which hosts five temporary exhibitions each year - ranging from the historical to the contemporary. We attract over 56,000 visitors annually.
The Stables Gallery is housed in evocative 19th century stables buildings and stages approximately seven contemporary and community exhibitions a year.
Visitors of all ages can try out their own artistic talents in a pre-booked workshop, or to soak up more history, Marble Hill Park and Ham House are nearby. Finish off with a coffee at the North Stables Café (Tuesdays to Sundays) at the rear of the gallery. All of these amenities can be easily reached from London and the South East by road, rail, or even by boat. A slightly further journey along the river to Hampton is Garrick's Temple to Shakespeare which also runs a varied programme of events
