In this episode, we get up close and personal with Horace Walpole: prime minister’s son, writer, and patron of the arts.
Georgia first discusses a book of poetry printed at Walpole’s Strawberry Hill Press before taking us inside the walls of the house itself, a gothic masterpiece on the banks of the river Thames on the outskirts of London.
