Chiswick House is cared for by English Heritage.
English Heritage is the Government’s statutory adviser on the historic environment. Officially known as the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England, English Heritage is sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
It manages over 400 historic sites across the country on behalf of the nation including Stonehenge, Dover Castle and Chiswick House.
In April 2005, in partnership with the owners of the gardens, the London Borough of Hounslow, English Heritage established the Chiswick House and Gardens Trust to integrate the management of the House and Gardens.
Chiswick House Gardens are part of the Borough of Hounslow.
The London Borough of Hounslow in west London stretches from Chiswick on the banks of the Thames in the east, to Bedfont, under the shadow of Heathrow Airport in the west, and is home to over 212,000 people.
Hounslow boasts a high proportion of green space, and an extensive water frontage along the Thames. The borough is also a gateway to London, with Heathrow on the doorstep, and major tube, road and train routes offering quick access into the capital.
Hounslow is a community of communities and one of the most culturally diverse areas in the U.K. with over 120 languages spoken and 35% of the population from minority ethnic groups. (Census 2001)
