    9.45am - 1.30pmChiswick House

    We are delighted to offer our members a private tour of Chiswick House and Gardens.

    Chiswick House is one of the most glorious examples of 18th century British Architecture and the tour will cover architectural and interior design, paintings, furniture and social history.

    The gardens are the birthplace of the English Landscape Movement and this will be a wonderful opportunity to discover more about William Kent and his garden designs that influenced Blenheim Palace and New York’s Central Park.

    We plan to meet at 9.45am in the café prior to the tour staring at 10am. The House tour will last approximately 75 mins (to  approx 11.15am)  when there will be a chance to take lunch in the café if desired. The garden tour commences at 12.15 pm and will finish at approximately 1.30pm

    Please note that the upstairs of the House is not accessible to wheelchair users

     Tickets for members only: £20 to include a souvenir guide book
