Chiswick Mall history
Over the years, Chiswick Mall has undergone several changes. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the street was home to many wealthy families who built large Georgian houses along the riverfront.
In addition to its rich history and stunning architecture, Chiswick Mall is also known for its association with William Hogarth, a famous English painter and printmaker. Hogarth lived in Chiswick for many years and is said to have been inspired by the area’s natural beauty and picturesque surroundings.
St Nicholas’ Church
St Nicholas’ Church is an iconic landmark located at the eastern end of Chiswick Mall. The church was built in the 15th century and has undergone several renovations over the years. The church is known for its stunning architecture, beautiful stained glass windows, and historical significance.

Chiswick Eyot is a small island located in the River Thames, adjacent to Chiswick Mall. The island is a popular spot for fishing and is home to a variety of wildlife, including swans and ducks.
