Richard Boyle, the third Earl of Burlington, designed Chiswick House, a romantic eighteenth-century villa and gardens, to evoke classical Italian themes. The house was a show piece, used for entertaining and to display the Earl’s collection of paintings, many of which remain. Next door was an older house, now demolished, where the Burlingtons lived, although Lady Burlington did turn one room into a bedroom after the death of her husband.

Beautiful house and gardens and lovely for a stroll in the summer


Beautiful House and gardens. Perfect place to go for a walk in the sunshine. Kids and dogs running around, enjoying a refreshing bath in the river (the dogs obviously, not the kids!).
And the open air opera in July, such a great venue for a cultural evening!

A lot quieter than many of Londons parks, but a beautiful place to spend (the odd) sunny day.
