"I love Chiswick because it is like a village in the city. Plenty of great bars, restaurants and shops to keep you entertained and enough greenery to escape to. A perfect combination! "

"I love the Thames - the towpath is sensational by Strand-on-the-Green - check out The City Barge pub, which even featured in the Beatles film Hard Day's Night! It's a fabulous pub with great food, but it's not such a hidden gem as it's rather popular when the sun is shining as you can eat right on the river outside, sitting on the wall with your legs dangling in the Thames...providing the tide is right!"

"Chiswick has the perfect location. It's right on the river, there's plenty of wilderness and it has village vibes – whilst at the same time the high road is long and wide and there are always activities along it. There's the stately homes too, like Chiswick House, Gunnersbury, Ham and Osterley House. Richmond Park and Kew Gardens are a stones throw away - it is just lovely!!!"

"This area is really peaceful but thankfully not sleepy. There is plenty of green space, great restaurants and plenty of cute shops. There are a lot of independent businesses alongside some of the bigger chains. A quick walk to the River Thames and there are some really scenic walks you can take."

"A very relaxing suburban area, but just a short journey into central London."

"It is a beautiful, leafy, safe part of London. I love the fact that it has its own lovely high road shops that I can walk to in 15 mins and covers everything from a big Sainsburys, M&S food hall, Waitrose and a large Boots, to small gems and lovely cafes and restaurants. I can get everything I need right there. Space NK, hairdressers, spas, Robert Dyas - so much variety. I love the parks and Chiswick House is incredible. I... more

  1. About Chiswick

    Chiswick is a large suburb of west London, and part of the London Borough of Hounslow. It is located on a meander of the River Thames, 6 miles (9.7 km) west of Charing Cross. It was historically an ancient parish in the county of Middlesex, with an agrarian and fishing economy. Having good communications with London from an early time the area became a popular country retreat, and as part of the suburban growth of London in the late 19th and early 20th centuries the population of Chiswick significantly expanded. With neighbouring Brentford, it became a municipal borough in 1932 and has formed part of Greater London since 1965.
