Chiswick: Flowers by the Thames
Part of the London borough of Hounslow just six miles from the centre of the UK capital, Chiswick is one of the largest and leafiest suburbs on offer.
Sitting comfortably on the River Thames, six miles west of Charing Cross, this is an area ideal for commuters and boasts some fabulous residential property opportunities.
Popular with professionals and parents with small children alike, Chiswick caters especially well for those who would like a large house with a garden without having to give up living within Greater London.
Both of the main inner ring roads - the North and South Circular roads pass through this area, as does the M4 motorway, which goes straight out towards the M25 and then Reading.
This, coupled with the excellent bus, underground and rail links, make it a perfect place for people who need to get both in and out of the big city.
On its bustling high street and beyond there are all sorts of restaurants to suit every palette, including the usual chains as well as quirkier places selling food from as far afield as Thailand and Iran.
Chiswick is also home to one of the most iconic finishing lines anywhere in sport.
The Boat Race, the annual contest between the rowers of Oxford and Cambridge universities, finishes by Chiswick Bridge.
Other structures crossing the Thames in the area are Barnes Railway and Foot Bridge, Kew Railway Bridge and Kew Bridge.
There are several things to see in and around Chiswick, including the magnificence of Kew Royal Botanical Gardens.
Home to scome of the most beautiful displays in the world, these gardens are well worth a visit for both residents and visitors alike.
Similarly, Chiswick House Gardens are open all year round, providing a multitude of wondrous sights for nature-lovers.
Stunning floral landscapes, sumptuous restaurants and superb views across the Thames make Chiswick the choice for those who like the finer things in life.
