What good is a gorgeous English landscape garden when it gets dark at 4pm? Put on your wellies, wrap round your scarf, and visit Chiswick House and Gardens for its Magical Lantern Festival and see a dark garden transformed. The lawns are festooned with massive glowing set pieces of animals, boats, archways and sleighs, all made with hand-sculpted lanterns. The walk takes around an hour or so, depending how often you stop for selfies. There's no parking at the House, so walk from Turnham Green or Chiswick station.
