Originally centred around Holy Trinity Priory founded in 1211, Hounslow grew from a small village into a significant town with regular markets and facilities for travellers. Hounslow Heath in the area was used on several occasions as a military encampment and significant buildings include Osterley House, Syon House, Hanworth Park House and Warton Hall.
Ten miles south-west of Charing Cross in central London, today Hounslow is an important retail district with a large shopping centre and many restaurants, cafes and small businesses.
Stretching from Chiswick to Heathrow, the area has relatively high employment rates and great transport links but high levels of sound pollution.
With a growing migrant community and one of the largest Indian communities in the UK, the area is diverse with a wealth of cultures and minority communities.
