If you fancy getting away from all the hustle and bustle of central London and fancy a walk in a park. Then let me advise you on Chiswick house and gardens.
Now my plan for this blog post was to show you a lovely spring dress I bought, my plan was to also show you some lovely blooms and how happy I am spring is here.
But that was not the case. Instead, it was too cold to wear that spring dress and the lovely blooms were looking a little bare.
That particular day, it felt and looked like winter. Oh my god you guys! What is going on with the seasons? Seriously, I’m looking for blue skies, cherry blossoms, sunnier warmer days. But I’m getting none of that. Instead it all grey skies, bare trees and freezing cold temperatures.
Not exactly spring season is it? But anyway I’m not here to grumble at the weather, I’m here to show you Chiswick house and gardens.
Sometimes you need to get away from all the hustle and bustle of central London. And if you’re like me, sometimes you just need to sit in a park somewhere peacefully and think about the meaning of life.
As I said last week, I joined English Heritage as I just adore exploring castles and old homes, while also love taking photos of my day. So my first stop since joining is Chiswick house and gardens. Which was the perfect place to start as a member, as it got me away from all the hustle and bustle of central London and gave me a park where I can think about the meaning of life?
Chiswick house and gardens are in west London, around Richmond area. I always think west London is more of a peaceful spot in London. Plenty of parks, lovely little cafes, and also just generally a fun place to explore (if you like an old building and grand parks).
Anyway, Chiswick gardens and surrounding park is a public open space, so no need to pay for entry fees. But if you wish to explore the gorgeous Chiswick house, then you would need to pay for entry fees – unless you’re an English Heritage member and in that case, you get in for free.
The gardens and the house was beautiful to explore. Even if we were a little chilly and while we would have liked to sit somewhere in the garden and have that meaning of life thought process. We still had a laugh and was able to take some photos of the gardens and saw it wildlife’s. We of course also enjoy some tea and cake in the local café to warm ourselves up.
If you need a peaceful place to wander one afternoon and enjoy spending it in a park, away from all the noise of London. Then I do advise you on Chiswick house and gardens.
