“Another hidden gem”
Review of Hogarth's House

Hogarth's House
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We went to look around Chiswick which is only a short train ride out os London.We walked round Chiswich gardens as the house wasn't open on that day.there is a lovely conservatory to wander through, coffee shop and quiet walks can be had.
If you follow the signs along the main road to come to Hogarths house.It has a mulberry tree in the garden which is older than the house itself.
You wander around the rooms and it feel such a lovely home at some point.Lots of pictures and info to read.So worth a visit and its FREE

This is one of the enchanting free things to do in West London. The house is situated in a small garden behind high walls,which gives it a nice secluded feeling. Once inside it is like stepping back into the past, with the fascinating story of the house and its inhabitants illustrated with numerous pictures and stories. It is well worth buying the guide book as to remind you of what a miracle it was that it ver survived. There are numerous prints of Hogarth's witty engravings which saucily illustrate the seamy side of Georgian life, notes below each paintings ( aad in handouts) make sure you don't miss any of the fascinating details.

About 5 minutes walk away is Chiswick House an amazing Plaladian villa under the care of English Heritage (admission charge), set in lovely grounds and with a pleasant cafe.

It's worth the trip just to see the 300 year old house, but Hogarth was an impressive man with a fine intellect and the displays in the house bring him to life and the old photos and descriptions give a good history of the house.

Despite the noise from the A4 on its doorstep, Hogarth's House can tranpsort you back in time the moment you cross the threshold. It has only just re-opened after restoration and, although it only takes about an hour to go round, there are lots of opportunities to found out more about Hogarth, either through his pictures or the many small artefacts that have been collected. Just a couple of minutes around the corner you can visit his burial place, the inscription on the memorial was penned by David Garrick. You can continue the circular walk via the cemetery for a further few minutes and arrive at Chiswick House and its wonderful gardens, ending with a superb cafe in the grounds with a delicious selection of cakes!

Hogarth's House is a fine example of a Georgian Home, although at the time it was built it was situated in the countryside. The recent restoration has been sympathetically managed. The permanent exhibition is a sharp insight into a great mind and talent who adored pugs and all his household staff.
