Boston Manor Park

Boston Manor Park

If you’re tired of the high rise buildings and busy-ness of London, why not visit the Boston Manor Park. It consists of 34 acres of woodland, lake, meadow and open spaces alongside the Boston Manor House. The House was built in 1623 for Lady Mary Reade and was then owned by the Clitherow family from the 1670s all the way up until the 1920s. It is now owned by the Hounslow borough council and is open to the general public with free entry!

The House has in fact been recently reopened after a huge restoration project which took 5 years to complete! The restoration was only possible because of the generous funders including the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Unlike a lot of other buildings which are restored to one particular period, the Boston Manor House incorporates multiple periods! The restorers have based each room on the strongest decorative style present.

Once inside you can marvel at the beautifully restored interiors, check out the exhibition galleries, meeting rooms and then end your trip with a bite to eat in the cafe. Locals and tourists enjoy the park spaces too – perfect for young kids to kick a ball out or for a picnic when the weather allows.

Throughout the year they host a number of events for adults, families and schools covering a range of topics. From community walks, the annual nature festival, arts and crafts markets, volunteer fairs, heritage talks to family craft afternoons there really is something for everyone! You can sign up to their events newsletter or check their website for upcoming events.

They also have three conference spaces which are available for hire. These have previously been hired for film and photography shoots, parties and weddings.

We know some people have been hesitant about visiting due to the motorway running over part of the park, but fear not. Most visitors will tell you that the noise from the motorway isn’t intrusive and you will still be able to enjoy the peacefulness of the park and green spaces.
