Have lived near here for a while but just managed to visit. Beautiful gardens and Camellia display in the conservatory was spectacular with many rare camellias on display. The conservatory itself has been lovingly restored. The gardens are also extensive and beautifully maintained. Dogs and their owners seem particularly welcome. The cafe is modern and very efficient with very nice... More

Called in here when travelling the A4. First stop was the cafe for a welcome coffee and scrumptious cake and then to the splendid Victorian conservatory to view the camellias. We were greeted by friendly and knowledgable volunteers who told us all about the camellias growing there, some of them over 200 years old. We were given a guide with... More

The Magical Lantern is a spectacular fusion of art, heritage and culture which is set outside. This is it’s second year and this year the lanterns created scenes from Europe to China. There was even a scene on Aladdin. All the lanterns were spectacular and full of colour. I especially loved the lanterns which were next to the water as... More

Chiswick park on a normal day, is a gem. So having the lantern festival event at night was an added bonus! My kids were bowled over by the lovely displays and we enjoyed the walk round the park, admiring the clever displays. At the end of the walk is an eating area with fairgrounds etc. The whole theme of the... More

The Chinese lantern display is very good and the trail takes you around the gardens at Chiswick house which is an added bonus. We arrived at 5pm so still light at that time. I think it would have been nice to re-visit some of the installations as it got darker to take extra pictures but I didn't see anyone else... More

Overall a nice evening out . The lanterns were exceptional both in design and size . We went on a Saturday evening with pre-purchased tickets but as usual the queuing was `haphazard` to say the least , could definitely be improved on by the organizers . Despite this once inside it was a pleasant time . There are some fairground... More

Enjoyed the lights and experience of walking around the lake to see the exhibition - but shocked by the price of the 'extra' items... like the mini funfair - where it was £5 a go - also £5 for every ride (adults and children alike)... a pot of noodles was £8 and the laser sticks were £5 each... if one...

All the Chinese lanterns were themed around the Silk Road and each had different meanings to them. They are spectacular to look at and are pretty detailed. I think I spent 2 hours there all together. Around halfway they sell roasted marshmallows which you can roast on the fire yourself. They are quite sweet but the the experience is fun.... More
