Points of Interest: Hounslow
Up until 1539, Hounslow stood as an important staging post on the Bath Road and was initially built around the Holy Trinity Priory, which was founded in 1211. Eventually the Great Western Railway line was built in 1838, which had the effect of reducing long distance travel between both London & Bristol.
This caused a slight deterioration of the local economy, which was only rectified when the Hounslow Loop Line was constructed in 1850. This particular investment spurned a number of new developments.
Hounslow now stands as a vibrant and exciting West London borough. Many of the locals enjoy living in this area due to its numerous attractions. With lots of things to see and do, including the likes of riverside pubs, museums, stately homes, beautiful parks, cycle paths and an abundance of walking routes. Such attractions make it a great place for families.
Whether it’s a sunny day or you quite simply desire a little fresh air and a break from the office, the region’s many open spaces are certain to suffice. The region is also home to an array of allotments, churchyards, cemeteries and parks.
Historic areas of interest come in the shape of theatres, museums and ancient houses. Such sites include the likes of Boston Manor House, Gunnersbury Park Estate and Museum, Hogarth’s House and the Paul Robeson Theatre.
Residents who are fond of neo-classical buildings and landscapes will often take a trip to Osterley House – a spectacular mansion surrounded by picturesque gardens and open space. In fact, Osterley is one of the last surviving country estates in the capital of London. Created by designer Robert Adam, it was once described as ‘the palace of palaces’.
Hounslow Urban Farm is a great place to take the kids and comes in the form of one of London’s largest community farms. Spanning 29 acres, this particular landmark stands as an important education and leisure facility and one that is suited to the entire family.
