A new fundraising initiative from the Art Fund to help local museums and galleries raise much-needed funds. Come and join fellow art lovers and supporters on a cultural fundraising walking trail round the grounds on Sunday 22nd March 2015.
About the event
The walk will take you through the historic Grade I listed gardens, including areas that are not normally open to the public. Our volunteer guides will talk about the history of the landscape design and the features, many designed by William Kent, including the beautiful cascade water feature and the Obelisk. The tour will also include the classic bridge, Ionic temple, the beautiful conservatory to see the famous camellia collection in bloom and will finish at Chiswick House. There you will be free to wander at your own pace through the magnificent neo-Palladian villa, built by the third Earl of Burlington in 1729 to showcase his art collection and to enthral his guests, the house continues to display many spectacular works of art.
Meet at 11am at the Obelisk, Burlington Lane Gate. Tours lasts approximately two hours. You will also receive a lovely Art Miles bag on arrival.
The registration fee is £20 for adults and up to four children (aged 16 and under) can walk for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Proceeds go to the continued preservation of the historic gardens excluding a small admin fee to the Art Fund.
