Just 50 yards from the busy Hogarth roundabout lies this charming early 18th century house which was once the country home of William Hogarth, the famous painter and engraver. It is now a gallery where most of his well known engravings are on display. These include: 'Harlot's Progress', 'Rake's Progress', 'Marriage à la Mode', and also 'Gin Lane' and 'Beer Street', both of which can be bought at the house, together with books and postcards of Hogarth's works. The house was restored with funds from many sources for the Hogarth Tercentenary in 1997.
In nearby Chiswick Mall are houses of a similar period, and in the graveyard around St. Nicholas' Church, is Hogarth's tomb. World-famous Chiswick House is only 10 minutes walk away.
