Home > Hounslow


Towards the outer edge of west London lies the borough of Hounslow, the result of the 1965 merging of Feltham, Isleworth and Brentford & Chiswick. The borough is perhaps best known for historic Kew Gardens and Hampton Court, the one-time home of Henry VIII, but has also had a long association with steam locomotion, examples of which can be seen in the Kew Bridge Museum.

The pharmaceuticals giant Glaxo-Smith-Kline has it's headquarters in Hounslow and Rupert Murdoch's Sky TV has a huge studio complex sited there.

The area has had some variously famous and infamous inhabitants: cheeky cockney singer and ex-Genesis drummer Phil Collins was a one-time resident, and Asif Mohammed Hanif, the man with the dubious honour of being the first UK-based suicide bomber to strike in Israel, also lived in Hounslow. The former house of William Hogarth is also in the borough.
