William Hogarth bought the house in 1749 as a weekend retreat to escape the noise of Leicester Fields and spent most of his time painting in the garden. In 1757 he was made Serjeant Painter to the King with an annual income of £10 per year. This position elevated him in society, proving to be very profitable. The house is undergoing restoration and is periodically closed to the public.  20 minutesTurnham Green
