About the area
Hounslow has a wealth of heritage attractions, beautiful parks, open country areas, and riverside walks. The River Thames winds its way along the southern boundary, with delightful stretches featuring historic Thameside inns, such as Strand-on-the-Green, Chiswick Mall, and Old Isleworth. Hounslow's heritage is diverse including five historic and stately homes – Syon, Osterley, Gunnersbury, Chiswick, and Boston Manor. Chiswick House, built by the third Earl of Burlington in 1729, is a fine example of a Palladian villa. Well-known people who have lived in Hounslow include Pissarro, Van Gogh, William Thackeray, and Katherine Parr. Hogarth's House, now a museum, was the country retreat of William Hogarth. Today, it contains collections of his engravings.
