Pitzhanger still sits in its beautifully landscaped original parkland, which became Walpole Park in 1901. In 2013 its historic features and landscapes were restored to how they had been in Soane’s time, following a major HLF-funded project. Today, Walpole Park is run by Ealing Council and is open to all.
