The suburban town of Hounslow lies on the Western side of Greater London and is centred around a bustling retail area that consists of a pedestrianised high street and large shopping precinct known as The Treaty Centre.
Within close proximity of Heathrow airport, the town has many modern hotels on offer for passing travellers and visitors alike. Due to its location and extensive transport links the town has thrived in recent years since the decline in heavy industry in the area, with many international corporations setting up base there.
In the last twenty years Hounslow has been in the process of undergoing a massive regeneration project aimed at modernising the town centre, including new shopping areas and state of the art housing and leisure developments.
Although a primarily urban environment, Hounslow has many attractive green spaces on offer with sporting and children's facilities. One particularly tranquil spot enjoyed by many is the Crane Valley Park with its riverside nature reserves.
