Experience our tea picnic at the York House Naked Ladies statues
Wednesdays* and alternate dates of choice we offer our Royal Deer Park Ride, you can see the York House Naked Ladies Statues on our full day tour including an afternoon tea picnic!
The 17th Century York House in Twickenham was built for Andrew Pitcairne, a courtier of King Charles I and so named as the grounds once belonging to the Yorke family and their farm.
It has had connections to the French Duc d’Orleans Louis Phillippe who lived here whilst on exile before becoming the last King of France. However it’s final private owner was Sir Rajan Tata an Indian Industrialist who developed the much loved riverside gardens and brought the statues known as the Naked Ladies to there resting place here.
Made of Italian Carerra marble they depict 8 Oceanids and a pair of aquatic horses and have influenced a local beer company to name one of it’s beers after them.
York House is now home to the local council offices and is available to hire for weddings.
