Why Move to Hounslow?
Sited in an extremely accessible location, Hounslow is considered foremost, to be prime commuter territory.
Transport links into and out of Central London from Hounslow can be made by either tube, rail, bus, and road with the added benefit of being less than 3 miles from Heathrow.
An ethnically diverse town (48% of residents are born abroad and one of the largest Indian communities in the UK) makes it a melting pot of food and culture.
Growing families moving here are attracted by its relative safety aspect, open spaces, and good schools, whilst the young inner-city workers love its connectivity.
The majority of Hounslow is situated within the London Borough of Hounslow, it is one of the borough’s five major towns (alongside Chiswick, Brentford, Isleworth, and Feltham) whilst also acting as its administrative centre.
When it comes to work, travelling into central London is not the only option with regards to employment opportunities.
Hounslow is also an economic hub all of its own, having a large shopping centre which adjoins its high street and many restaurants, cafés and a swathe of businesses many of which are associated with product assembly, marketing, telecommunications and Heathrow Airport.
There is more than enough going on to entertain everyone. Hounslow is lucky to have 5 beautiful stately homes within its boundaries, each worthy of a visit whilst the 200-acre Hounslow Heath provides ample space to enjoy the outdoors.
Hounslow has now been recognised as one of the country’s top 10 growth areas.
After already receiving almost £19 million investment from the Mayor of London resulting in a massive increase in new housing developments, work continues in other areas across the borough of Hounslow until at least 2025.
In the past Hounslow has been underrated but as it continues to develop and expand, with improvements to its leisure, educational and recreational services, it is very much one to watch.
Hounslow Schools & Education
An all-important factor if you are seriously considering a move to Hounslow with your family is education.
You will need to find a good school close to where you choose to live. Carrying out as much research as you can well before you move will really help.
There are various ways to find the best schools in your new area but one of the most informative is by visiting your local council website.
Schools are managed by the London Borough of Hounslow council.
