Chiswick House Gardens
Restored 18th Century Gardens, created by Lord Burlington and William Kent. Open daily from 7am until dusk – Free entry.
The gardens at Chiswick House have been loved for centuries. With their combination of grand vistas and hidden pathways, architectural delights and a dazzling array of flowers, shrubs and specimen trees, they create a unique oasis in this corner of London.
But there is more to Chiswick House Gardens than mere beauty. This is also the birthplace of the English Landscape Movement and the inspiration for great gardens from Blenheim Palace to New York’s Central Park.
2010 saw the culmination of a major £12.1million restoration project that has fully restored these historic gardens.
Areas of the Gardens will have limited access during the Summer Sessions open air music week (15-19 June). Please download the poster on the right for more information.
