Surrounded by gardens, park and farmland, Osterley is one of the last surviving country estates in London.
Described by Horace Walpole as 'the palace of palaces', Osterley was created in the late 18th century by Robert Adam for the Child family - owners of Child's Bank - as a place to entertain and impress their friends and clients. Today the house is presented as it would have looked in the 1780s, including many of the Child's original treasures.
A six-year-long project returned the overgrown gardens to 18th century grandeur, including herbaceous borders, roses and ornamental vegetables beds. The original Robert Adam summer house is filled with lemon trees and scented shrubs.
