Marble Hill House (Twickenham)

Marble Hill House is a historic house at Twickenham in Greater London.

George II, while Prince of Wales, had the house built in the 1720s for Henrietta, wife of a younger son of the Earl of Suffolk. Henrietta was separated from her husband, and a favourite of George. Her husband eventually succeeded to the Earldom and promptly died, leaving Henrietta a widowed Countess. She married George Berkeley and lived at Marble Hill until 1767, when she died.

Today, after threatened demolition in 1901 by William Cunard, the house, with its gardens extending down to the River Thames, is in the care of English Heritage.
