Chiswick House

  • About
    Chiswick House is one of the most glorious examples of 18th-century British architecture. The third Earl of Burlington (1694-1753), who designed this elegant Classical villa, drew inspiration from his 'grand tours' of Italy.

    A promoter of the Palladian style originally pioneered in Britain by Inigo Jones, Burlington sought to create the kind of villa and garden found in the suburbs of ancient Rome. To do so, he employed William Kent to create sumptuous interiors to contrast with the pure exterior.

    The intimate Bedchamber Closet has now been redecorated, with paintings and prints providing an insight into the Burlington family. A double portrait of Lord and Lady Burlington, by William Aikman, hangs alongside charming paintings of their two young daughters. Further exciting loans of Old Master paintings, including a recently discovered Rubens, are displayed to enhance the pictures in the Red and Green Velvet rooms. They emphasise the artistic diversity which characterised Burlington's combination of home and private gallery.

    The Classical gardens are a perfect complement to the house. There is level access to most of the grounds (except for Terrace Walk, owing to a gradient).Wander among the statues in the Italianate gardens, and look out for the buildings hidden in the trees.
