Living in Chiswick
Chiswick, in west London W4, is full of attractive period properties, green spaces and outstanding private and state schools, plus great transport links and plenty of tempting bars, shops and restaurants. That's why this is the location of so many must-have homes for London's many young professionals and families.
This pretty area is known for its high safety record and welcoming atmosphere – it really does stand out from the crowd.
The District Line provides easy access throughout the suburb and across London, with stations at Chiswick Park, Turnham Green, Stamford Brook and Ravenscourt Park. Or travel through Chiswick station and you'll be in Waterloo in less than 30 minutes.
Enjoying a River Thames frontage, Chiswick was once a small fishing village and the local church is still named after St Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors. Other local landmarks include Hogarth's House, once the country home of artist William Hogarth; Chiswick House, believed to be the first landscaped gardens in England and London's last remaining family brewery, Fuller's Griffin brewery. Offering among them tours and beautiful gardens, these laid-back retreats contrast to the vibrant Chiswick High Road, with its many shops, restaurants and pubs.
