Chiswick station is on the Hounslow Loop, serving commuters in west London. The station is in Travelcard Zone 3 and offers six trains per hour to the capital, reaching London Waterloo in approximately 25 minutes. The building itself opened in 1849, and was designed by Sir William Tite in a classic villa style so that it would blend in with nearby Chiswick House, a neo-Palladian mansion.
An incredibly green part of west London, Chiswick town sits on the banks of the River Thames and has a buzzy restaurant and cafe culture. The tree-lined High Road is full of independent shops, and you'll also find several 19th century pubs serving beer from the nearby Fuller's Brewery - London's last surviving family brewer. The Strand On The Green is a popular spot to watch the University Boat Race, and The National Archive of England, Wales and Northern Ireland is located on the other side of the Thames.
