Director led tour of Chiswick House and Gardens, Chiswick
TWO TICKETS LEFT!!!
Chiswick House, a domed and porticoed 18th century pavilion created by Lord Burlington and his protégé William Kent, is an imitation of Palladio's Villa Rotonda near Vicenza. One of the most influential works in British architecture and landscape, it helped to establish the Palladian style in England. Rescued from dilapidation and demolition in the twentieth century, Chiswick House is also a heroic conservation success story.
