Holland House, originally built in 1605 by Sir Walter Cope, eventually became the home of the Fox family and an unofficial base of operations for the Whig party in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The house was tragically destroyed by Luftwaffe firebombing during the Blitz and today only ruins remain, whilst the grounds are now the public Holland Park.H: 154cm, W: 130cm,D: 8cm
