The South East England region

Now superseded by the A4 and the M4, the A315, where the apartment is situated, was the main road to the South West and in particular to Bath, hence the many hostelries along its way! Some of these are now recommended "gastro-pubs." Isleworth itself was a port on the River Thames when the Thames was a busy transport artery.. The surrounding area was planted as market gardens and orchards, and in times gone by the apprentices from the London Guilds spent their holidays fruit picking in the area, hence the very famous inn right by the Thames in Old Isleworth, The London Apprentice. Isleworth was also famous for its soap works , where the original Pears Soap was manufactured.

West London

Some suggested places of local interest for starters might be Syon House, a National Trust Property famous for its Adam interior and flourishing garden centre.

Osterley House, another National Trust property with an Adam interior set in extensive and beautiful, park land.

The Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew, world famous and special in any season of the year.

The Musical Museum in Brentford with its Mighty Worlitzer!

Waterman’s Art Centre also in Brentford, showing current films and art house theatre.

It is now possible to walk the whole length of the River Thames, and it is easy though a small challenge, to walk to Richmond along the tow path, take a look around and then walk on up to Richmond Park.

Plenty of good shopping can be found in the Westfield Centre Shopping Mall in Shepherds Bush, and in Kingston, Ealing and Hounslow town centres. Both Chiswick and Richmond make for nice visits with lots of speciality shops and pleasant restaurants.

There are river boat trips to Westminster (downstream) and up to Hampton Court Palace (upstream) from Kew Pier.

"Lovely accomodation and most friendly owner"

Super clean, spacious rooms with a complete set of nice extras in the kitchen and convenient location to transport links - the best value in town and a friendly owner as well. Five minutes walk to train station and half an hour later you are in the centre of London. Would most definately choose again.

"An Excellent base in London"

We had a great few weeks in this apartment. It is truly a home from home break with everything you need supplied. It is an excellent location with a wealth of transport facilities. The River Thames is a short stroll away or take a short bus ride to Richmond or Twickenham for excellent shopping, restaurants and bars. We personally would recommend the Fox in Twickenham for great food and location to the River. From here take a walk over the bridge to Eel Pie Island a hidden gem in London. Richmond is beautiful on a sunny day, we had lots of good days there even though our stay was in Winter. Closer to the apartment the Coach & Horses is a cosy English pub with excellent food to suit all tastes, Syon House is also worth a visit, beautiful open space with a good cafe. Kew Gardens is a short drive away also. Wendy is an excellent host, always cheerful and cannot do enough to make your stay a memorable one. We would have not hesitation in returning, an excellent London base.
