Camellia Festival Visitor Success

In the first two weeks, the Festival has attracted over 2,000 visitors from all over the UK and overseas as well as local London visitors.

Chiswick House and Gardens Trust brings a burst of glorious colour to the winter season with the Camellia Festival 2012 on now until the 18th March.

The festival is a celebration of the over thirty historic Camellia bushes that are considered to be one of the most important Camellia collections in the world. The collection is housed in the spectacular Chiswick Gardens Conservatory.

In the first two weeks, the Festival has attracted over 2,000 visitors from all over the UK and overseas as well as local London visitors, coming to find out about the history, the cultivation and growing of the Camellias at Chiswick House and to enjoy the magnificently restored Conservatory.

Funds raised from the Camellia Festival last year enabled the full replanting of the Italian Garden beds for the first time in five years this Spring as well as contributing to the ongoing upkeep of the gardens.  Visitors for 2012 can also see two out of three of the original statues, Ishmael in the Wilderness and The Statue of a Girl (or Nymph) in the Bath that have now been restored and returned to the Conservatory.
