90 Acre Park on doorstep, Gladstone Park, named after the Prime Minister Gladstone.
It has been there for 200 years. Prime Minister Gladstone at Dollis Hill in Dollis Hill House.
Queen Victoria was now on the throne - it was bought by Lord Aberdeen who took over the house, They made it the place for Liberal politicians, especially William Ewart Gladstone (1809 - 1898, statesman and four-time prime minister of Great Britain (1868-74, 1880-85, 1886, 1892-94), to stay and rest from the endeavours of Parliamentary life down at Westminster. He was able to use Dollis Hill House as a quiet retreat, near to Downing Street, thanks to the Aberdeens. His bedroom was on the first floor at the east end of the house, looking towards Hampstead and he worked, for the most part, on his Government papers in the library which was immediately below. In the clement weather, much of his time was spent outdoors, with meals taken on the verandah (later obscured by an unsightly addition to the house). Often, there would be a gathering of politicians under the trees, some of which still frame the patio area.
Trees were one of Gladstone's obsessions. Legend has it that he cut them down, in the fashion of George Washington, but the truth is that he planted many - some at Dollis Hill, including a pine tree and a fir. In 1887, the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria was celebrated throughout the country and across the then British Empire, but the leaders of the Colonies came to London to join in the festivities. Gladstone invited them up to the house in the park here and there is a picture of him, resplendent in a Derby bowler hat, with four of his colleagues, on the lawn.
Others who visited were Joseph Chamberlain, Lord Rosebery, Lord Randolph Churchill (father of Winston), the then Archbishop of Canterbury and many other men of eminence & Mark Twain who was famous for his perceptive comments on the places he visited, he spoke of the delight he had in living there. 'He had,' he said, 'never seen any place that was so satisfactorily situated, with its noble trees and stretch of country, and everything that went to make life delightful, and all within a biscuit's throw of the metropolis of the world'.
