Marble Hill House is at the centre of Marble Hill Park

Marble Hill Park is an area of 66 acres (270,000 m2) of parkland in Twickenham, in 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 1724–29.[1]

From 2004 to 2006 the park was a venue for open-air music events organised by the Jazz Cafe.[2]
