Chiswick House Gardens has been shortlisted for a prestigious Landscape Institute award in recognition of the recent historic garden restoration. The URS Scott Wilson consultancy, who led the landscape design element of the project entered Chiswick for the award which is presented to encourage and recognise outstanding examples of work by the landscape profession.

Chiswick House Gardens has been shortlisted for the Heritage and Conservation category. The Awards Ceremony will be hosted by the poet, journalist and broadcaster Ian McMillan.
