Chiswick House Friends is a charity and was founded in 1984 by local residents and dog-walkers wanting to do something about the general neglect of the gardens and the poor security for visitors.

We support the Chiswick House and Gardens Trust (CHGT) in their management of the whole estate. As well as raising funds for projects in the House and Gardens, we represent the local community and act as a link between our members and the Trust. Our aim is that the site should flourish in the long term, providing enjoyment and education for all who visit.
