Hogarth's HouseWith its location next to one of the busiest roads in London, it's hard to believe that Hogarth's House, William Hogarth's country home and museum, was once Hogarth's country residence - or as he described it "a little country box by the Thames". A beautiful, enclosed garden hidden behind high red-brick walls is now the only reminder of the rambling rural idyll Hogarth once experienced. Probably one of the cruellest satirists of his day and one of the country's leading painters, Hogarth lived in this late 17th century Chiswick house from 1749 until his death in 1764. While the surrounding area has changed over the years, the artist's house and grounds have been sympathetically restored to offer a surprisingly accurate picture of life as it was when he was alive. Now a gallery and museum, the property contains an exhibition exploring Hogarth's life including memorabilia on loan from a major Hogarth collection at Aberdeen art gallery. Alongside these are examples of his work and objects showing his range of interests as well as an unrivalled collection of his prints and engraved copies, including 'Harlot's Progress', 'Rake's Progress', 'Marriage a la Mode', 'Gin Lane' and 'Beer Street'. Hogarth's tomb can be found nearby in the graveyard of St Nicholas' Church.

Best for:
Hogarth history, prints and engravings.

A 300-year-old mulberry tree still thrives in the garden of the house.
