If you are visiting the gardens during the day, the public car park is situated just off the westbound A4 and clearly marked by a brown tourist board entrance sign. The car park is a 5-10 minute walk from the House along uneven gravel paths.

The car park has spaces for 60 cars including 3 disabled spaces. The charging hours are 8am to 6pm every day including Public and Bank Holidays.

The car park is managed by the London Borough of Hounslow. Income from the parking charges pay for the upkeep of the car park and the care and preservation of the gardens.

By Bicycle

Currently the nearest cycle racks are at Chiswick House & Gardens. We are working to install cycle racks on-site as soon as possible.

Group visits

We encourage those wishing to book for a group visit to Hogarth’s House to consider booking outside of our opening hours. This provides exclusive access to the House, its galleries and grounds and a dedicated member of staff onsite to answer any questions that arise. Please note given the size of the House, it is not possible to conduct a guided tour. £7.50 per person, minimum of six people.

For group visits during opening hours, we encourage you to let us know so we can discourage other groups on that day. We cannot guarantee that your entire party can remain together as you will not have exclusive access to the House and it may be busy. No guided tours will be possible either by our staff or members of your party.

Accessibility

To the House

Step free access to the site is via our double gates and through our new lobby.

There is level access throughout the Weston Studio and our Mulberry Garden.

Toilets are located in our lobby. We have one accessible toilet.
