Beyond Central London: Strawberry Hill Gothic Castle

This Trip: 2013.08.10

After a first visit during which all popular tourists attractions in zone 1 were covered, here’s this frequently asked question: Where would you recommend for a day-trip in London, except for all those well-known hot spots? Well, there’re a lot more to see in this one of the largest cities in Europe.

Strawberry Hill House, Southwest London (zone 5)

Catch a South West Train which runs in both directions on a circular route from London Waterloo station. The house is just 5-min walk from Strawberry Hill station. Full ticket price per adult is £8.40. Not only is this recently renovated property a lovely fairy-tale castle, but its gothic-styled interior is also impressive. There are some of the most beautiful fireplaces I’ve ever seen. The garden at the back of the castle, which is just a spacious green, may not be so appealing, but from which there is the nicest view of this finest example of a gothic castle.
