Hogarth’s House will be closed to the public between 5 and 25 March to allow works which are part of the Mulberry Garden Project to be undertaken.

Because the contractors will be bringing in services for the new Learning Studio from the road, then installing new York stone paving in front of the House, it won’t be possible to reach the front door safely.

The Trust says they knew short periods of closure would be needed and that potential visitors would be disappointed by this, but it was very exciting to see the works in progress and the end product would be terrific!

The £2.3million Heritage Lottery Funded Mulberry Garden project, includes the construction of a new learning studio adjoining the Grade 1 listed House, the conservation and repair of the historic garden wall and the creation of an ‘exhibition garden’, whose design and planting present the story of the site.

The aim is to provide an appropriate setting for the historic building, to expand the range of events, activities, learning and volunteering opportunities for a wider audience, and to help manage the greatly increased numbers of visitors on site, while improving their experience. The works will also ensure the future sustainability of the site with new facilities that are fit for purpose, flexible and used to their full potential for everything from learning to events and functions.

The project partnership (the Trust and the Hogarth’s House Trust/Hounslow Council working together) has apologised for any inconvenience this necessary closure may cause to anyone planning on visiting Hogarth’s House.
