Among the most glorious examples of 18th-century British architecture.
Chiswick House makes a fascinating day out in West London. The third Earl of Burlington, who designed this noble Roman-style Palladian villa, drew inspiration from his Grand Tours of Italy. The Gardens - birthplace of the English Landscape Movement - are open following a major restoration which has revealed the original vistas and repaired the statues and garden buildings. There's also a fantastic café in a RIBA award-winning building that looks out on the gardens and house. You can download a free audio tour to help you explore the history of the house and gardens.
