Brentford is a quiet Thameside area of west London bounded to the north by the A4 and the M4 flyover. Despite its largely residential character, Brentford has much to offer the visitor. The magnificent Syon House, which originated in Tudor times, shows off classical interiors designed by the legendary architect Robert Adam. It's surrounded by a huge parkland landscaped by Capability Brown. These grounds include 40 acres of gardens with a stunning 1820s conservatory plus a lake, a butterfly house and art, garden and craft centres. Children are very well served by an adventure playground and activity area. Another great historic sight in Brentford is Boston Manor, built in the early 1600s and now one of London's most impressive Jacobean houses, tucked away in a walled park. Brentford was an ancient, pre-Roman settlement which much later became a coaching town, an agricultural centre and a place of industry, commerce and boat-building - a tradition that can still be recognised at the waterfront. The Kew Bridge Steam Museum exhibits the world's biggest working beam engine. Culture vultures, meanwhile, may visit the Weir pub, where the artist Turner lived as a child. The classic poet Shelley also spent childhood years in Brentford.
