Orleans House Gallery
- What:Membership Events
Orleans House Gallery and the Octagon Room are the evocative remains of a home built by James Johnston, Secretary of State to James II.
The 1721 baroque Octagon Room, designed by James Gibbs, was built to entertain Queen Caroline, wife of George II, and survives largely intact. Although the original house has been lost, the site remains one of considerable artistic and historic interest. Members will enjoy a private tour of the gallery, hearing about its history, before viewing their current exhibition ‘Madge Gill: Medium and Visionary’ with the curator.
