A virtual tour of Horace Walpole's house.

Yale University's Lewis Walpole Library offers a virtual tour of the house and grounds of Strawberry Hill, the residence of Horace Walpole, who wrote the first gothic novel, The Castle of Otranto (1764). You also can catch the "Horace Walpole and Strawberry Hill" exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum until July 4th.

About the image: Horace Walpole, 4th earl of Orford, NYPL.
