Chiswick House

Lord Burlington's masterpiece built circa 1728 is one of England's first and finest Palladian villas. The ornately decorated interior includes the dazzling Blue Velvet Room. Beautifully laid out classical gardens with statues, urns and obelisks surround the House, as well as the newly restored water cascade. It has been said that a ghost of one of the past cooks prepares a full English Breakfast in the late afternoon. Nearest Tube station is Turnham Green.
