Chiswick House Estate reunited for the first time in 70 years

Chiswick House & Gardens Trust will take over management of Chiswick House on 6 April 2017. The move unites management of the villa and gardens as one integrated work of art, recreating the vision of 'architect Earl' Richard Boyle who created the Estate in the 18th century.

Landmark agreement

Our Chairman, Andrew Fane, commented "this landmark agreement brings together the villa and its gardens for the first time since it was given to the nation. Our plan is to enable even more people to explore and enjoy this wonderful place. 

Our team is working to improve visitor facilities so that we can show the historical, horticultural and architectural significance of the villa and gardens together as a complete work of art."
