Hounslow Area guide
Emerging from the shadow of Heathrow Airport can’t be the easiest of transitions, yet Hounslow is in the process of doing just that as it revitalises its housing stock and highlights the desirability factor that comes with being near masses of green open space. Being on the Western edge of the Greater London metropolis means that Hounslow has both an urban and rural face and as the area also borders neighbourhoods that overlook the Thames, it offers plenty of tranquil views.
Living here not only puts residents near a global gateway, but it also offers plenty of open-air history as Richmond Park, Kew Gardens and Syon House are all a short drive away. For picturesque days out, most locals head for Old Isleworth which is the part of Hounslow that touches the River Thames. There are plenty of shopping options in the immediate neighbourhood together with an eclectic choice of international cuisine which residents of new developments like Habito will be quick to take advantage of. Quick transport links to London via the Piccadilly Underground Line mean that Knightsbridge (home of Harrods), Westfield Shopping City and the West End are all within easy reach.
