Chiswick House & Gardens Events
Located in West London, Chiswick House & Gardens is an example of 18th-century British architectural magnificence. A sprawling neo-Palladian villa, Chiswick House was built by Richard Boyle, the third Earl of Burlington in 1729. With gilded rooms and 18th Century art, the house often provided a spectacular backdrop for parties through the centuries.
But, that’s not all. The Grade I villa is also surrounded by 65 acres of lush gardens featuring classical vistas, manicured lawns, ponds and fountains. The gardens were in fact restored and revived following a massive facelift between 2005-2010.
Today, Chiswick House & Gardens is not only a popular tourist attraction, but it also offers some of the most iconic backdrops for weddings, corporate events and private parties in London. The property has a mix of 5 picturesque indoor and outdoor venues for conducting a variety of events – from intimate wedding ceremonies to large conferences and summer parties of up to 3000 guests.
Located onsite is the RIBA award-winning Chiswick House Café, also ideal for corporate entertaining and social events.
