Spring House & Garden Visit

Thursday 25rd April 2024 at 11.30am

We are very pleased to invite you to join us in a privately arranged visit to Chiswick House and gardens where we will be guided by Ricky Pound who managed Chiswick House between 1997 and 2014.  This is an exclusive opportunity to discover Chiswick House and Gardens’ long, exciting, and varied history and the possibility to stay for the whole day to experience the house and gardens in Spring.

Chiswick House and Gardens Trust is a registered charity which manages the Grade I-listed and Scheduled Ancient Monument – Chiswick House. In addition, they manage the 65-acre Grade I award-winning gardens and 21 listed garden buildings and statues on behalf of English Heritage and London Borough of Hounslow

The Grade I-listed conservatory was designed by the architect Samuel Ware in 1813 and substantially re-modelled in about 1930. The conservatory houses the largest collection of heritage camellias under glass in the world.  The walled garden dates back to 1682 and was converted into a community kitchen garden by a group of local volunteers in 2005.

Our private visit will include:

  • A tour of the house from 11.30am to 1.00pm

  • Café:  the Café will be open for a one hour break where we can buy food and drinks

  • 2.00pm guided tour of the Garden, finishing at 3.30pm. 

The award-winning café was designed by the architect firm Caruso St John. Its contemporary space looks out on the magnificent gardens and neo-Palladian villa. In 2011, the café received three Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) awards including London Building of the Year.

Booking: Tickets are £22 for BGT members and £25 for non-members.
