Camellia trail

Chiswick House Conservatory would usually be opening its doors for thousands of people to admire the collection of heritage camellias at this time of year. That’s not able to happen this year, but instead Chiswick House & Gardens Trust has designed a trail around the Gardens showing all the outdoor Camellia plants.

Download a map from Chiswick House & Gardens website from Tuesday 9 March 2021 onward.

There are Camellia 13 trees, between the Italian Gardens and the Staveley Rd gate. The map will also suggest some activities for children – including counting how many lions you see on the way.
