The Lord Nelson

The Lord Nelson

A charming local pub enclosed by the surrounding houses, making it the perfect spot for a quiet drink.

Watermans Art Centre

Watermans Art Centre

Watermans is to West London what the National Theatre is to Central London; theatre, independent cinema and a great children's theatre.

The Weir

The Weir

Once home to J. M. W Turner, The Weir is a fantastic gastro pub serving hearty meals.

Time

Time

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.

Syon Park

Syon Park

As well as Syon House and its gardens by the River Thames, there is a café, garden centre and the new Hilton hotel nearby.

The Stable

The Stable

A modern pub serving handmade pizzas and more than 80 ciders, situated next to Kew Bridge within a new development.

Ealing Park Tavern

Ealing Park Tavern

A beautiful dining room with an open kitchen serving excellent food. The Ealing Park Tavern also has its own microbrewery and fantastic garden. Check out their website for events!

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Enjoy a day out all through the year in these beautiful gardens. Make sure you check out the Victorian glasshouse, which is the largest surviving structure of its type in the world.

Sounds Original Collectors Record Shop

Sounds Original Collectors Record Shop

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.

L'oro di Napoli

L'oro di Napoli

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!

Hook & Cleaver

Hook & Cleaver

The best butchers in South Ealing along Pitshanger Lane, selling some seriously good sausages!

The London Apprentice

The London Apprentice

Set along the River Thames, this pub is the most famous and possibly oldest in Isleworth.

Oliver's Wholefood Store

Oliver's Wholefood Store

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...)

Kew Gardens Hotel

Kew Gardens Hotel

Delicious food and a quirky interior makes this gastro pub a great choice every time. Grab a private booth, lounge on a sofa or hide up on the mezzanine.

Kew Village

Kew Village

Fancy a coffee? A slice of cake? A sausage sandwich? Do you need a last minute present for a girlfriend? Or do you just need a post office or access to the District Line....? Head to Kew Village. There is something for everyone!

"Pre-historic sharks have been dug in up Brentford!"

The moment you enter through the gates of Syon House and drive up through the meadow, the surrounding hustle and bustle just seems to melt away...
