Transforming Orleans House project

The Transforming Orleans House project will enable the gallery to build on past success, and focus on preserving and making accessible important heritage assets for everyone to enjoy.

Please help use achieve our target. All donations and suggestions of help are welcome.

About the project

The restoration of our heritage and the creation of a collection study room will enable Orleans to extend its role as a heritage hub for West London providing education, training and support for the sector.

Heritage assets include:

  • Gibbs Grade I Octagon Room
  • Historic North Wing
  • Richmond upon Thames Art Collection

Scheme details

The information pack outlines the overall scheme, learning and volunteering plans, and Orleans House Trust.


The Heritage Lottery Fund and the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames have committed funding, but we need to raise a further £375,000, including at least £20,000 from individual donations to reach our match funding target.

All donations and suggestions of help are welcome - if 2,000 people can give £20 we have reached our individual giving target.


You can donate online, or cash donations are welcome in the donations box.

Please send cheques made payable to ‘Orleans House Trust’ to: Orleans House Gallery, Riverside, Twickenham, TW1 3DJ
