About Chiswick House and Gardens
Chiswick House and Gardens is one of the earliest and most important neo-Palladian villas in England. The revolutionary, natural-looking Gardens influenced gardens from Blenheim Palace to New York’s Central Park. In 300 years, the House and Gardens have been owned by aristocracy, rented by royalty, hosted Queens and Tsars at parties. It was restored in 2010 with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Today, the site is managed by Chiswick House & Gardens Trust, an independent charity working in partnership with English Heritage and the Borough of Hounslow. The villa has been returned to its original size and design, and the gardens to their original layout. They comprise 65 acres of formal gardens and park, with over 1500 trees, including Cedars of Lebanon planted in the original 1729 garden. Its rare camellias are famous, and the 2-acre organic Kitchen Garden has also been lovingly restored. Today we welcome over one million visitors every year, to enjoy the house, nature, cafes, exhibitions, and workshops.
