Marble Hill Park is an area of 66 acres (270,000 m2) of parkland in Twickenham, Middlesex. Located within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, it is an English Heritage site that surrounds Marble Hill House, a Palladian villa that was originally built for Henrietta Howard, the mistress of King George II in 1729.

In recent times, the park has played host to a number of music events laid on by the Jazz Cafe, including live performances from Westlife, Morcheeba, Röyksopp, Zero 7 and The Herbaliser.
