Chiswick House and Gardens

Wander around the gardens which include the Italian Garden, lake, cascade, Ionic Temple, Obelisk, avenues and Wilderness.

The gardens were laid out in 18th century by Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington with advice from his friend and artist, William Kent. This marked the beginning of Kent’s career as a landscape designer. Kent swept away the 17th century formal gardens, turning the landscape into the pastoral bliss advocated by Alexander Pope.

The Car Park is small so be patient.

The gardens are open every day and are free to enter. They get busy at weekends.
