Run by the National Trust, it's a fab place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon - walks by the lake, space for frizbie, or a cream tea at the café.

Osterley is a district in the London Borough of Hounslow in west London. It is situated approximately 10 miles (16.1 km) west south-west of Charing Cross. Osterley lies north of the A4 (The Great West Road) and extends further northwards beyond the M4 Motorway. Syon Lane forms the border to the east, while the border with the town of Heston lies to the west. Osterley is principally a rural district encompassing the large ancestral private estate of Osterley Park and its house. These were formerly owned by the Jersey family and were used during World War II as the home for Tom Wintringham's Home Guard training school. They are now National Trust property. During the inter-war period of the 1930s when the Great West Road was completed ribbon development housing appeared, and this gradually expanded to form the comparatively small residential sections within Osterley.
