Commercial Property Area Guide: Isleworth – London
Isleworth is a small, charming town in the London Borough of Hounslow in West London. The riverside settlement known as ‘Old Isleworth’ is where you can find plenty of pubs and restaurants with the picturesque backdrop of the Thames. Many locals enjoy walking around Syon Park and Hounslow Heath – the local nature reserve, where the hustle and bustle of the city melts away.
While Isleworth offers many a much-needed breath of fresh air, it is still within easy reach of Central London – taking just 45 minutes by train. This makes it ideal for both commuters and for those travelling in from further afield. It’s also within a 20-minute walk from a wide range of attractions including Twickenham Stadium and the World Rugby Museum.
Since the 20th century, the town of Saxon origin has experienced a significant amount of residential development, as well as an influx of office spaces and factories, particularly in the northeast towards Brentford.
