A BLUE PLAQUE at 76 Brook Street, Mayfair, marks the residence of the great architect Colin Campbell, known for his great houses of Stourhead, Houghton Hall, Altrop, Greenwich Hospital, Burlington House, etc. But, I want to highlight MARBLE HILL HOUSE at Twickenham on the Thames. I took the Thames Boat to Hampton Court last summer and delighted to see MARBLE HILL HOUSE from the river. It was wonderful. I wanted to suggest to my readers that they might like to visit this very interesting Colin Campbell house which was built for George II’s mistress (when Prince of Wales) Henrietta Howard, Countess of Suffold. The house is now owned by British Heritage, and it has been restored to its Georgian beauty. I strongly recommend this visit.
