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.

Chiswick House Dog Show
Held on the cricket pitch of a neo-Palladian villa, this splendid (and noisy) sounding affair is a dog-lover's must. Seventeen classes ranging from My Dog's Got Talent to Waggiest Tail promise lots of cute doggie pic opportunities and probably a few laughs....Markets and fairs Sunday September 23 2018 Free

You forget you are in the middle of London! Beautiful gardens, lake and for those with kids, excellent kids play area right next to a cafe!! Perfect spot for a picnic too in 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!
