Letting Agents in Gunnersbury London W3
Gunnersbury boasts a desirable location on the western outskirts of London, close to the Thames and prestigious attractions like the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.
It is part of the borough of Hounslow and offers many appealing features for residents, including family attractions and amenities.
Attractions and culture
Among the attractions in the area is Gunnersbury Park Museum, which is currently offering a range of activities for all ages in its small mansion building while the main museum is closed for renovation works.
Some £21 million is being spent on the refurbishments, which will repair external and internal parts of the large mansion building and provide display rooms to showcase the museum's collection and the history of the building. The work is scheduled for completion by spring 2017.
Gunnersbury Park itself, which is jointly owned by Hounslow and Ealing Councils, encompasses open grass spaces, historic buildings, gothic ruins, a large children's play area and an 18-hole pitch-and-putt golf course in the summer.
Residents of Gunnersbury are also within easy reach of the London Museum of Water and Steam on Green Dragon Lane, which has exhibits including steam engines, an outdoor water play zone and a gallery telling the story of London's water supply.
Other attractions worth exploring in the area include Gunnersbury Triangle Nature Reserve, Turnham Green and Chiswick Common.
As far as big events are concerned, Gunnersbury Park is one of the venues involved in the Chelsea Fringe, a festival that is "all about harnessing and spreading some of the excitement and energy that fizzes around gardens and gardening", according to organisers. The Chelsea Fringe will return from May 16th to June 7th 2015.
