We visited Chiswick Gardens one evening over the Christmas period, to see the lights show with the family. It was a calm, dry evening (though cold), which helped with this outdoor tour of the gardens. The show of lights and music was overall pleasant, not...More

The Christmas light show has received incredibly mixed reviews(!), but we decided that we would go for a walk in the gardens on New Year's Eve. We have been driving past the entrance for 40 years - and have never once ventured in. The House...More

Having visited Chiswick House for the first time last year for the absolutely amazing lantern festival we were looking forward to visiting for the After Dark light show. Maybe we have been spoilt a bit this year having visited Kew at Christmas and Wisley Glow...More

Hugely overpriced, underwhelming and ridiculous excuse for an ultra-minimalist light show that was cashing in to say the least. I enjoy some aspects of modern art but calling a trees reflection in the water from a single spot light an installation reeks of pretentious desperation...More

All I can say is what a rip off! A really poor light show, same music and 2 street food vendors! Totally mis-sold. Don’t waste your time with this show. Chiswick house and grounds are beautiful though

The worst and the most “budget” light installation I have ever seen. No atmosphere, cheap and spears. Never again.

Amazing evening and beautiful art light installations. I feel sad for the people who expected reindeer and Christmas gluttony. This was the most thoughtful and stunning display of light art in situ within the most beautiful grounds. Perfectly curated experiential art. Absolutely loved it. As...More

Awful, no words for it, awful, it’s incredibly frustrating as I wanted to see a fun light show, It was the opposite, awful!
