Chiswick House and Gardens Trust
Chiswick House & Gardens Trust is a registered charity, created jointly by English Heritage and the London Borough of Hounslow in 2006. The Trust is dedicated to the preservation, restoration, maintenance, repair and enhancement of this outstanding Grade I listed house and gardens, and their contents, as heritage treasures for the benefit of the public.
Chiswick house is an 18th century villa set in classically landscaped gardens in west London. One of the earliest and finest examples of neoclassical architecture in the UK, the house was designed from 1720-32 by Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington, and his associate the painter, garden designer and architect, William Kent.
