Chiswick offers a lot of variety for a day out making it little surprise it is such a popular place to live. When we recently visited we wanted to cram all of the best features into one day. There is a lot of walking but it is well worth it.
Walking the thames path
We would actually start the day at Kew Bridge and start along the Thames Path back into the city on the North side. You will quickly come across Strand-on-the-Green which is an excellent spot for a lunch at The Bull & Crown or The City Barge.
towards chiswick park
After the Strand-on-the-Green the Thames Path becomes a little disappointing, so we would quickly head for Chiswick Park. The Park itself if amazing to walk around. See the Italian Gardens, the stunning conservatory and then walk the grounds closer to Chiswick House itself.
To the brewery
Head south back towards the Thames Path and start in Dukes Meadows towards Hammersmith. Walk along spotting rowers and make your way to the Fullers Brewery. The maker of London Pride runs its operations from Chiswick. Consider taking a tour or popping into the on-site pub for a taste of their finest.
or is gin more your thing?
If gin is more your thing then one of the hottest brands on the London gin scene is the place for you to visit. The charming Sipsmith Distillery is based here towards the Chiswick Park and Turnham Green tube stations. You should consider booking a tour in advance from £15.
Sipsmith Distillery | Turnham Green | £15
where to finish your day
Head towards the underground stations and you have plenty of options for food. Our favourite picks are Foxlow and Vinoteca.
However if you want to continue with a few drinks we would suggest continuing along the Thames Path towards Hammersmith stopping on the way at the various pubs, including the haunted Black Lion.
