Osterley Park

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 Park Farm Shop

Just along the drive into Osterley Park is this great farm shop that is open all weekend!

Bunny Park

As well as fantastic play areas for kids of all ages, there is a maze and an animal park that houses birds, goats, sheep and peacocks. The peacocks roam free so be careful not to get chased by one as you walk around!

A huge range of pretty flowers, homeware and a fish store with some incredible breeds of fish. If you're tired of looking at all of that, you can stop and have a scone and a cup of tea - beautiful!
