Kitchen Garden

Our Kitchen Garden is home to our community and educational programmes. The produce we grow is used by our café. Buy some of our fruits and vegetables to enjoy at home.

Visit the garden

Our kitchen garden is open on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1.30-3.30 and on special open days. Meet our team, see the seasonal activities underway. Buy a pot of honey or some vegetables and enjoy a flavour of Chiswick at home.

Our bees

The walled garden is home to a small colony of beehives, set up to help pollinate the garden. You can buy honey from the hives on our vegetable stall each week.

History

The Walled Gardens at Chiswick House date back to 1682, when they were created by Sir Stephen Fox who lived in the adjoining Moreton Hall.

In 1812, the 6th Duke of Devonshire purchased Moreton Hall, incorporating its garden into the grounds of Chiswick House.

Today, over 40 volunteers support our gardening team in managing the seasonal planting and food production in the two-acre site. We are also delighted to welcome students from local schools who learn about plant science, horticulture and minibeasts with our specialist team. To find out more visit our volunteering pages.
