Visit the garden
The Kitchen Garden is home to our learning and community programmes, and is where our award winning volunteers produce our organic produce. The Kitchen Garden is available to visit on special open days only.
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, subject to seasonal availability.
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.
