Chiswick House and Marble Hill House
4 March 2009
To complement 'Andrea Palladio: His Life and Legacy', which celebrates the 500th birthday of the Italian Renaissance architect, we visit two of the finest examples of Palladian architecture in Britain. Chiswick House was built by Lord Burlington in 1729 and we see many original designs by Palladio that Lord Burlington purchased on his Grand Tour in 1718. We also privately tour Marble Hill House and explore the exquisitely restored interiors recreated as they would have been when Henrietta Howard, mistress of George II, lived at the house in the eighteenth century, including her columned showpiece bedchamber and the Grand Room where she held court.
