Chiswick in September 2011

Chiswick in September 2011

The September 2011 outing for the London Villages group was to Chiswick.

From Turnham Green and a brief introduction to the Bedford Park area, we headed off along Chiswick High Road, noting Hogarth's connection with the area en route.   The highlight was Chiswick Mall with its fine houses and views over the Thames, where we learned about their interesting histories and owners (past and present), and the  concentration of breweries nearby.

After admiring the oldest buildings in what was once the village High Street, we proceeded to Chiswick House and lunch, followed by a tour of the lovely gardens before wending our way back to Kings Cross.  

Many thanks to Peter Moore for an excellent day out.
