Holland House Terrace


HH TerraceWe are delighted to announce that Holland House terrace is now open to the general public during the winter months when Opera Holland Park is not in residence. This is a triumph of patience and perseverance over many years. Having persuaded The Royal Borough to conserve what remains of the great house's facade – and it was done beautifully, as we have said before – the terrace is now being landscaped temporarily with planters and astroturf, and appropriately-designed benches donated by The Friends. At long last the focal point of the Park can be approached and enjoyed by all of us. A permanent landscaping scheme requires substantial investment; unsurprisingly it is not available at present.
