Chiswick House, London

This exquisite gem, set within beautiful landscaped grounds, is one of west London's most sought-after locations for elegant occasions. In its heyday, the house acted both as a gallery for Lord Burlington's fine art collection and as a glamorous party venue where he could entertain friends, family and high society. With exclusive use, the lavishly gilded interiors today provide a stylish setting for civil weddings.

Aside from our licensed venues and the ones mentioned above, we do not host weddings or receptions at any of our other 400+ sites however some sites might have a privately owned venue close by. If you would like to take some wedding pictures at one of our sites, you will need to contact wedding.photography@english-heritage.org.uk in advance to arrange permission for this (fees are from £150+VAT). There are some sites that will allow hire for hand fastening or other non-legal ceremonies, for this you will need to approach the site personally as this cannot be arranged via the Hospitality Events Team. If you are not local to the site, you can call Customer Services to ask for a telephone number for the relevant site.

If you are an event agency or planner looking for a bespoke event for a client at one of our sites that doesn't currently host hospitality events, this might be possible. Please note that due to the historic nature of our sites and depending on requirements there may be considerations such as Ancient Monument Consent to factor in, for these reasons one off hires are complicated and we would advise engaging an event planning agency or professional wedding/event planner. In such circumstances we can put the Event Planner directly in contact with the site you are interested in hiring, but please be aware that you will not have a Hospitality Events Co-ordinator or Manager organising your event as we have at our 14 official Hospitality Events sites. We are unable to host any events which would be unsuitable given the nature of the site - this is especially something to consider at former ecclesiastical sites. You can contact us at hospitality@english-heritage.org.uk to discuss a one off bespoke event at our sites.
