Places Of Interest in West London

Places of Interest in West London Staying in West London, you’ll be in the heart of the action and close to a number of famous attractions but if you want to get away from the tourist trail and uncover some real hidden gems you’ll find plenty of unusual venues to explore.

If you’re hoping to spend a few lazy days in some fresh green space, you couldn’t choose a more beautiful area than Holland Park [map], Abbotsbury Road.

This beautiful place is bursting with secluded pavilions, wooded walks, a Japanese rock garden, an adventure playground and plenty of space for kids and the young at heart to run around in.

Visit Holland Park in the summer months and you might even catch some theatre or open air opera.

Go eco-friendly with a visit to The Lookout Environmental Centre [map], Rangers Lodge, Hyde Park. This is a great place that makes looking after the environment a fun notion and you’ll find plenty to keep little hands busy.
Enjoy a busy day at one of London’s best kept secrets and certainly an unusual venue.

The Roof Gardens [map], Kensington High Street, Kensington, is a unique combination of restaurant, function room, nightclub and corporate events venue overlooking stunning views of West London. This oasis in the sky is located more than 100 metres above South Kensington High Street and is a pleasingly calm environment in which to relax.

For another rare gem head to the Boston Manor House [map], Boston Manor Road, Brentford. A rare surviving Jacobean manor house built in 1623, this building is set back from the road in parkland with a lake and ancient cedar trees.

It was the home of the Clitherow family for two-and-a-half centuries. King William IV and Queen Adelaide, who were friends of the Clitherows, came to dine here in 1834.

Boston Manor is renowned for its fine English Renaissance plaster ceilings in the State Rooms on the first floor. The ground floor rooms date from the early 19th century and house part of the local collection of paintings.
