Grove Park is a beautiful part of London - and is like a little bit of countryside in the capital.

Next door to Chiswick House and just across the River Thames from Kew Gardens, the architecture here is stunning, featuring large houses in British Queen Anne Revival style with lovely big gardens.

The area has some top notch eateries, excellent schools and independent shops and cafes, all surrounded by beautiful green spaces.

With lovely leafy streets, it's an area that combines suburban serenity and escapism with a touch of London vibrancy and panache.

In Grove Park you can enjoy Thames-side strolls, easy access to Kew and Chiswick House, plus a variety of local independent shops and eateries.
