Osterley Park House
The spectacular 18th-century interiors of this house comprise one of Britain's most complete examples of Robert Adam's work.

It became their house in the country, created for entertainment and to impress their friends and business associates. The magnificent 16th-century stables survive largely intact. The surrounding parkland is complete with pleasure grounds and neo-classical garden buildings. This property is owned by The National Trust.

Chiswick House - London
One of the most glorious examples of 18th-century British architecture, Chiswick House was designed by the third Earl of Burlington (1694-1753). A promoter of the Palladian style pioneered by Inigo Jones, Burlington sought to create the kind of house and garden found in the suburbs of ancient Rome. To do this, he employed William Kent to design sumptuous interiors to contrast with the pure white exterior. An exhibition and video tell the story of the house, grounds and Lord Burlington, including his ‘grand tours’ of Europe. As you walk through the house, take in the splendour of the Gallery with its beautiful painted and gilded ceiling, and discover the Red, Blue and Green Velvet rooms. Then step into the classical gardens – a perfect complement to the house itself. The grounds are fascinating – look for the unique statuary in the Italianate gardens and the recently restored water cascade.

To this day, you can still experience the beauty that so enthralled him, as you stroll around six acres of magnificent buildings. Each and every corner will capture your heart. Beneath the colonnade in Clock Court is the entrance to the King's Apartments lovingly restored to their full glory after the fire of 1986. Here, you'll find the King's Great Bedchamber and his Eating Room as well as the magnificent King's Staircase.
