Leafy Chiswick is a welcome retreat from bustling central London. From its idyllic riverside properties to its High Road, packed full of great places to eat and drink, it’s an area popular with anyone from families to media types and celebrities. For a day out, Chiswick House is one of the prettiest tourist attractions in London, and as a bonus, you’re never far away from a good pub (Fuller’s brewery is located in the area) and a decent restaurant.
