Syon House

Syon House

Syon House is a beautiful Grade I listed building, set within the 200 acre Syon Park. Did you know that it is in fact the West London residence of the Duke of Northumberland? There is so much history and culture to take in that you could easily spend a whole day around Hounslow!

The main areas to see are the Great Hall, Ante Room, State Dining Room, Red Drawing Room, Long Gallery, The Print Room, Princess Victoria’s Bedroom and the lovely Inner Courtyard.

It would be a shame to miss out on exploring Syon Park while you’re there. You can take your pick from the Great Conservatory, Gardens, Arboretum, the Parkland, Grassland and Meadows!

The Great Conservatory was built in the early 19th Century by the architect, Charles Fowler. He specialised in large industrial buildings and metal working technology. This is clearly evident in the design of the building which was very different to the stone building style at the time.

There are 100 acres of Parkland to explore, which are particularly beautiful when the flowers start blooming in Spring time! If you’re interested in Trees, make sure you don’t skip the tree collection which dates back to the 18th century! They even have more than 20 Champion Trees!

If you’re looking for a lavish venue for an event, then look no further! Syon House is available for private hire. It has previously been hired for weddings, corporate events, food festivals and milestone birthday celebrations.

Opening hours:

One thing to note is that Syon House is closed during the Winter months. It is open from mid-March through to end of October. We advise to check their website to confirm the exact opening date. During the season, they are open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays from 10.30am to 4.30pm, with 3.30pm being the last entry.

Tickets:

Buying your tickets online will allow you to skip the queue and save a few pounds! You can also book onto a guided or self-guided tour. It’s a great way to really immerse yourself in the history of Syon House and Park. If you would rather skip the House, then there is also an option to buy a ticket just for the Gardens and Great Conservatory.
