Hogarth's House

Updated 02/27/2014

Fodor's Review

Besieged by a roaring highway that somewhat spoils the atmosphere, the home of the satirist and painter William Hogarth (1697–1764) is still worth a visit by fans of his amusing, moralistic engravings (such as "The Rake's Progress" and "Marriage à la Mode"). Sadly the house has had an unlucky few years; closed by a fire in 2008, restoration work was then halted by a second fire the following year. However, now fully reopened, the house contains exhibition spaces devoted

to Hogarth and his work. Look out for the 300-year-old mulberry tree in the garden—the remnant of a failed attempt to get silkworms to breed in England. Hogarth's tomb can be found in the cemetery of St. Nicholas's church on nearby Chiswick Mall.
