Chiswick House and Gardens

Last Saturday I managed to take some time off from my work and spend some ‘me’ time after a long time. Usually, I easily get occupied with various of programming work even in weekends apart from my regular weekday work. But last Saturday, I decided not to stare at the Laptop screen and enjoy the beautifulness of the gorgeous Mother Nature instead. To be honest I did not had a single clue about where I should go to breathe some fresh air and spend some quality time with nature. Once again, thankful to Mr. Google, I searched for some scenic parks around Hounslow area and got to know about this beautiful Chiswick House and Gardens.

Chiswick House and Gardens is located in about 10 minutes of walking distance from Chiswick Train station. When you walk out from the Chiswick Train station you will immediately see a sign board saying the direction you should walk.

Arguebly Chiswick House is the finest remaining example of Neo-Palladian architecture in London. The House was designed by Lord Burlington and completed in 1979. – Wickipedia

Even though the park is situated in London (west), it is really really big and spreads across 65 acres of land size. The speciality I love in this garden is its own diversity. You will get the chance to explore from sweeping landscapes to woodlands, from fragrant rosaries to long and quiet walking paths, and so many things.

    Simon said it quite right very nice pictures it looks like taken by a professional photographer. It seems to be a massive park with loads of green space and statues. It seems very peaceful from the pictures, am I right?
