Camellia Festival †
THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 13TH MARCH 2016
The 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.
