Why not explore the beautiful hidden gems of West London that are on your doorstep at Hilton London Syon Park.
Syon Pleasure Gardens
Take a walk in the beautiful Pleasure Gardens of Syon house and view the famous work of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, one of Britain's greatest landscape gardeners. His other works include Blenheim Palace and Warwick Castle. At Syon, he was brought in to lay out the gardens in the British Landscape Movement style. The showpiece is its quarter-mile ornamental lake, which is surrounded by rare trees and flowers from around the world (subject to opening times/days).
Syon House belongs to the Duke of Northumberland and is now his family's London residence. The house is set in the 200 acre Syon Park and has beautiful eclectic interior which was designed by the architect Robert Adam in the 1760s. It is a truly wonderful place to visit and it's right on our doorstep!
