    Guided tour of Chiswick House and Gardens

    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

    West London Waste and Recycling team gave an eye-opening presentation to Kew Society members in July 2016.

    We have asked for a follow-up meeting to check what progress has been made or changes are afoot to implement new initiatives.

    This is your opportunity to get direct answers on the basic upkeep and services of the Kew area.

    How does this area fit with national policy? Can we do anything better? What hasn't worked?

    Don't miss this important talk by Emma Hall from The West London Waste Authority who has kindly agreed to come and talk to Kew Society members about the impact of waste on our community. Come along with your ideas and questions.

    Doors open at 6.30pm & talk starts at 7pm.
