A little bit of history
Dukes Meadows was home to an annual cheese fair until the 18th Century and lead to the town's name of Chiswick, an old English word for 'Cheese Farm'. Bedford Park is an area of houses designed by Norman Shaw in 1877 and is the original Garden Suburb.
Need to know
Helen Mirren, Kate Beckinsale, Pete Townshend and Sebastian Coe were all born in Chiswick.
The Westfield shopping centre is very close to the area, but with its large variety of independent stores, Chiswick has plenty of hidden gems to be found. Chiswick High Road alone has around 250 shops and that's before you've even started exploring Devonshire Road and Turnham Green Terrace.
CHISWICK IS HOME TO OUTDOOR EVENTS SUCH AS THE BEDFORD PARK FESTIVAL AND GROVE FEST. KEW THE MUSIC TAKES PLACE AT THE POPULAR KEW GARDENS.
