One of the few remaining record shops. They have a great selection of original vinyl from the 1950s to 1980s all in great condition. The shop has been in Ealing since 1983 and always has a great selection, with new finds every time I've been in there.

This family run pizza restaurant is the best pizza outside of Italy, in my view. I always take my friends and family here when they come for a visit and they absolutely love it. The service is so welcoming and the stonebaked pizzas are so tasty. A taste of Italy in South Ealing. Amazing!

Time is in a lovely little bubble of shops along the River Brent. Lots of nice wraps and salads, great brunch options and with a great view as a bonus! Make sure you sit by the many windows.

There is no better place than Oliver's in Kew for a guilt free treat! (They have guilty ones too if that's what you are after...)

Brentford is a suburban area of the London Borough of Hounslow at the confluence of the River Thames and the River Brent in west London, situated 8 miles (12.9 km) west south-west of Charing Cross. Brentford, as the name suggests, was built on a fording point on the River Brent. Nearby Syon House is the London residence of the Duke of Northumberland. The Brentford Dock flats (Originally named the Tiber Estate) were built alongside formerly important transport infrastructure as Brentford is the terminus of the Grand Union Canal, originally the Grand Junction Canal. This waterway is still in use for leisure traffic.
