The Grade I listed conservatory at Chiswick House is home to a stunning collection of rare and historic Camellias, and we’ll be using these blooms as the motif for the family drop-in workshop. Craft a colourful paper teapot decoration you can take home a memento of your visit.

Tours of the House will be taking place at 12 and 2.30pm

London History Day is an annual celebration of the capital’s extraordinary history and heritage run by Historic England. London History Day takes place every year on 31 May – the day Big Ben first started keeping time. For just one day, museums, galleries and organisations across the city hold special events and display rare objects that show how London’s people and places have contributed to the city’s unique identity.

London History Day 2018 celebrates courage

The capital is teeming with sites layered in courageous history, connecting people and places in the most inspiring ways: from small acts of kindness, initiative and one-off heroism to battles fought, sieges waged and principles founded. London’s got it all. This broad theme will allow participating organisations to celebrate the pioneering spirit of London’s people and places.
