London - Chiswick House - October 1969

I can't tell which Tabitha this one is, is it #3 or #2... no curtains yet so it must be #3.

 One shilling and ninepence, now it costs £5.50 ($8.80 AUS)  but really worth a visit.  Check it out here.

I notice we visited the State Apartments and the Kitchen... I still love visiting Kitchens in these beautiful old homes.

From Chiswick House Website.

Chiswick House is a magnificent neo-Palladian villa set in beautiful historic gardens in west London. A £12.1 million project has restored the gardens which were unveiled in June 2010.

Built by the third Earl of Burlington in 1729 to showcase his art collection and to enthral his guests, the house continues to display many spectacular works of art and provides a stunning venue for entertaining.

The gardens at Chiswick are the birthplace of the English Landscape Movement and have inspired countless gardens including New York's Central Park.
