Transport

While it’s only a short hop from Chiswick to central London on the Underground – Chiswick Park station is just a 16-minute Tube ride from South Kensington – you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re somewhere in Middle England. Services from Chiswick railway station to Waterloo take less than half an hour. Head in the opposite direction and Heathrow is less than half an hour drive away.

Accommodation

The areas well preserved Victorian cottages, large Edwardian townhouses and elegant Georgian properties line broad, leafy streets. The availability of homes with off-street parking and large gardens adds to Chiswick’s upmarket appeal. More affordable housing can be found in modern flats and apartments, such as those along Chiswick High Road.

It will cost at least £342 per week (or more) to rent a one-bedroom apartment.

It will cost at least £675 per week (or more) to rent a three-bedroom apartment.

Things to do

The wide boulevard like Chiswick High Road contains the main concentration of shops, cafes and restaurants, where tables spill out onto the pavement giving it a continental feel – perfect for people watching with a cup of coffee. Charming traditional pubs can be found on the banks of the Thames, where you can enjoy riverside views over a drink or two.

The local parks are some of the finest in West London – from the rustic beauty of Gunnersbury Triangle and riverside tranquillity of Dukes Meadows Park to the landscaped gardens of Chiswick House.

This peaceful west London enclave is invaded once a year for the world-famous Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race, which finishes at its eponymous bridge – a fun day out, even if you don’t know your cox from your bow.
