Chiswick House and Gardens
Chiswick House is one of the earliest examples of neo-Palladian design in England and the gardens are the birthplace of the English Landscape Movement.
Notice: Due to high wind speeds, Chiswick House and Gardens will not be opening on the morning of Thursday 23rd February. We will review the weather forecast throughout the day and if possible, we will reopen in the afternoon.
Richard Boyle, third Earl of Burlington designed and built Chiswick House from 1725-1729. The villa was inspired by the architecture and gardens of ancient Rome. The sumptuous interiors and key items of furniture were designed by William Kent and house a rich collection of Old Master Paintings.
The 65 acres of Grade I listed gardens have been loved for centuries, with their combination of grand vistas, architectural delights, water features and wilderness areas. A £12.1m restoration of the gardens has returned them to their mid-18th century glory with new additions including picnic and play areas that create a unique oasis in London.
The sumptuous interiors by William Kent display a rich collection of old Master paintings. Open Sundays-Wednesdays 10am-5pm.
