Camellia FestivalThe colourful Camellia Festival, which showcases the wonderful Chiswick House camellia collection, remains free for a second year - a move which has seen visitor numbers quadruple to 16,000 last year - a record attendance. Housed in the gardens' spectacular conservatory, designed by Samuel Ware in 1813, the collection is a national treasure and the oldest in the Western world - it was created in the early years of the 19th century by the 6th Duke of Devonshire. It's wonderful to see these beautiful blooms in the conservatory next to the restored nineteenth-century Italian Garden, replanted in 2012. Known as the Queen of the Winter Flowers, the camellias at Chiswick bring a burst of glorious colour - from pinks to reds, whites to stripes - to the spring season.

 

About Chiswick House

A former royal residence and stunning example of classical 18th-century design, Chiswick House originally belonged to the "architect Earl" Lord Burlington, an avid traveller and lover of Italian architecture. The Palladian revival house assumes the guise of an octagonal domed villa, allegedly inspired by the Villa Capra "La Rotonda" outside Vicenza. More about Chiswick House
