In addition to being a beautiful historic building, Chiswick House has a fabulous collection of camellias, with rare and important specimens of the spring-flowering shrub including one of the world's two known examples of 'Middlemist's Red' (the other is in New Zealand). The annual display of colourful blooms can be found in the Grade I-listed conservatory, designed by Samuel Ware in 1813, where you'll find all sorts of camellia merchandise (including a print by Sir Peter Blake). As well as taking in the plants on show, do also make time to stroll in the house's lovely gardens.
