Visit Chiswick House Gardens

April 2

Chiswick House is a beautiful example of Classical architecture in the style of Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio.

Built by Richard Boyle, 3rd earl of Burlington, 1727-9, the villa was famous in its heyday during the 18th and 19th centuries for some of the most sumptuous entertainments ever held in Britain. The rich decoration and many paintings are well worth the entrance fee.

The House and Kitchen Garden open 27 May to 31 October 2021, Thursday to Sunday 10.00 am – 4.00 pm. (Monday to Wednesday are for pre booked private groups and tours only). Tickets for the House and Kitchen Gardens, which include conducted tours of the Gardens, are available through the Chiswick House & Gardens website.

The Gardens are considered the birthplace of the English Landscape Movement and the inspiration for great gardens such as Blenheim Palace and Central Park in New York. In recent years they have won numerous prizes in the London In Bloom awards, including Heritage Park of the Year and People’s Choice for parks.

Access to the 65 acres of Gardens is free. There are pedestrian entrances on all sides of the park, on Staveley Rd, Park Rd, Burlington Lane and the A4. Access by car from the A4.
