Chiswick House is a magnificent neo-Palladian villa set in beautiful historic gardens in west London. A £12.1 million project has restored the gardens which were unveiled in June 2010.
Chiswick House is one of the finest examples of neo-Palladian design in England. Inspired by the architecture of ancient Rome and 16th Century Italy, the third Earl of Burlington built the house as a homage to Renaissance architect Palladio. Never intended as a private residence, Chiswick House remains a bold architectural experiment; a showcase for art collections, and a venue for entertaining.
The gardens at Chiswick are the birthplace of the English Landscape Movement and have inspired countless gardens including New York’s Central Park.
In the spectacular grounds, and right by the house, sits the Burlington Pavilion, a fully-lined ivory marquee ideal for a number of events. This elegant space is the perfect blank canvas and enabling clients to transform the space according to the style and requirements of their event with branding, additional production and theming..
Much of the grounds themselves can also be used for grand events and celebrations, capable of hosting 2,000 guests or more. With a covered and outdoor option and beautiful views all around, Chiswick House’s gardens are particularly well suited to summer parties.
