Hogarth's House

Hogarth's House

A hidden gem waiting to be discovered..

Hogarth's House is in Chiswick, built around 1700, was the country home of the great painter, engraver and satirist William Hogarth (1697 - 1764) from 1749 until his death.

Hogarth’s House has been open to the public since 1904. For most of its life it has displayed a collection of Hogarth’s prints. Despite several challenges during the 20th Century including bomb damage during the Second World War, the site has remained open to the public. The House and garden are managed by Hounslow Council.

A refurbishment in 2011 by the Heritage Lottery Fund (now National Lottery Heritage Fund) significantly enhanced interpretation inside the House. The 2020 Mulberry Garden Project, also funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, has not only added the new Weston Studio for learning and activities, but also re-landscaped and reinterpreted the garden to give the site an exhibition garden that highlights historic planting and themes.

Hogarth’s House is currently closed to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus. We will reopen the House as soon as we are able when our usual opening hours below will resume.
