Just a short stroll from St. Margaret’s, Old Isleworth is a small riverside community on a stretch of the Thames that has been lived on for over 4000 years. The meandering Thames borders to the east of Old Isleworth, with Kew Gardens on the opposite bank, while the glorious expanses of Syon Park and House extend to 200 acres to the north.
Today, Old Isleworth is a small, close-knit community, exemplified by the regular Artisan and Farmers Markets launched in 2018. Stroll past the beautiful Georgian houses along Church Street and you reach the London Apprentice, a wonderfully historic pub situated on the very banks of the Thames. Perfect for enjoying a drink or meal, and for soaking up the views across the river. Independent cafes and restaurants line the High Street.
The area is serviced by Isleworth mainline train station, with its direct trains into central London, and by primary schools including The Blue School, St. Mary’s, and Worple Primary. A 25 minute walk along the river takes you into the centre of Richmond, accessing both the tube network and an extensive range of shops and eateries.
