Visiting with kids

We’re always excited to welcome younger visitors to Chiswick House and Gardens! With 65 acres of woodland, lawns and gardens, there’s plenty of space for children (and their parents!) to play, walk, picnic and enjoy an ice cream. Don’t forget to visit our Café Colicci, next to the playground, which has a great kids’ menu..

We also have a packed schedule of family-friendly events, workshops and activities taking place all year round: check out our What’s On page to find out more and book tickets.

One quick thing to note: unfortunately we don’t have a cloak room here, so please only bring bags that you can carry close to you during your visit to the House and Gardens.

Baby changing

Baby changing is available in the toilets by the Café and pushchairs are welcome throughout the grounds.

Buggy Park

We have a buggy park at the entrance for House visitors. There are a limited number of spaces and you will need to collapse your buggy when you leave it in the park. Please do not leave bags with the buggy – we cannot be held responsible for your belongings so we recommend that you bring everything in bags that you can carry into the House with you and keep at your side.

Birthday parties

We love being part of your child’s special day. We have lots of areas onsite suitable for your party. If you would like to book one of our indoor venues, please contact
