Chiswick, London

Chiswick is a suburb in West London, about half an hour by train from the city center (in tube zone 4). We chose this neighborhood primarily because we found an affordable vacation rental with enough bedrooms and bathrooms for 8 people. It’s a lovely little neighborhood with a small town feel, complete with decent supermarket plus butcher, baker and candle-stick maker (not so sure about the last one). Since we knew most places would be closed over the Christmas holiday, it didn’t matter so much if we were in the center of London or not.

We walked past this adorable little church every time we went to the high street or the tube station. Unfortunately, we never had the chance to go inside.

On Christmas day we took a walk over to the Chiswick House to walk around the grounds and park surrounding it. In the summer the house is open to visitors but we had to be content with the water foul, park landscape and house exterior.

    I love Chiswick. The Turham green and the Church area is simply so beautiful any time of the year especially in fall when the colors are out of the world! The Chiswick House and gardens are so unique catering to people of all ages. I have wondered how they are so well-kept! The bright colored vegetables at the farm house market looks very tempting! Reading through your blog was like living in Chiswick! 🙂 Thank you.

    1. Thanks. We really enjoyed staying there and seeing a part of London most tourists dont see.
