Syon Lane station lies on the Hounslow Loop Line in west London, in Travelcard Zone 4. Although it's a modest two-platform station with no buildings, it boasts strong transport links for the residential area surrounding Twickenham stadium, with direct services to London Waterloo, Richmond and Weybridge. It is also a relatively modern station, having only been built by the Southern Railway in 1931.
The station takes its name from the street on which it was built. It originally connected the grounds of two of west London's most opulent stately homes, Syon House and Osterley Park House, and was lined with numerous grand villas. Today the area has more of a sporty vibe, with a number of amateur football clubs and rugby clubs on either side of the lane. Brentford's business district lies to the east of the Gillette Corner junction, named after a now dormant Gillette factory. Here you'll find a small selection of shops - the perfect place to purchase a snack for your journey.
