Chiswick sits within both the London Boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow and is located in West London on the River Thames. Consequently it is home to a number of rowing and boating clubs and during the Annual Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge Universities the towpath is full of spectators as the finishing post is close to Chiswick Bridge.
Chiswick High Road is the main shopping area and contains a mixture of chains, independent stores and supermarkets and a plethora of restaurants, coffee shops and bars, including the Michelin starred Hedone restaurant. Devonshire Road and Turnham Green Terrace have a number of boutiques and some very popular independent coffee shops, like Tamp and the recently opened Chief.
For families, Chiswick is a haven, with some truly fantastic nurseries and schools, both state and independent. There are plenty of activities to keep children entertained from the private, family club Maggie and Rose, to the well maintained parks and playgrounds dotted around the vicinity, family-friendly restaurants and leisure centres and gyms.
Transport links in Chiswick are numerous with three tube stations and two overground stations as well as excellent bus routes. The A4/M4 is easily accessible providing great commuter links. Subsequently many large firms including GSK, Worley Parsons, and British Standards Institution have offices nearby making this part of London a great place to live and work.
