Become a Patron and help build a bedrock of annual support

Chiswick House and Gardens Trust manages the Grade I-listed Chiswick House and the 65-acre Grade I registered Gardens.

Although the Trust receives support from its key partners, English Heritage and the London Borough of Hounslow, we need to raise more than £1m each year to keep the gates open. These funds support our charitable activities in the Kitchen Garden, conservation of Chiswick House and Grade I-listed monuments, care of the award-winning gardens and the volunteer programme.

By becoming a Patron of Chiswick House and Gardens you can contribute to a bedrock of annual support from which the Trust can maintain the Estate and develop its activities, and in return receive opportunities to join social activities and one-off events that will enhance your enjoyment of being a Patron.

For any questions or help, please email our development office.
