Camellia Festival

Guests visiting the annual Camellia Festival, which showcases the wonderful Chiswick House camellia collection, can do so for free this year. Housed in the Gardens' spectacular conservatory the collection is a national treasure and the oldest in the Western world having been 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 designed by Samuel Ware in 1813, positioned 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
