Hanwell Square Aerial 2000 x 920 (1)


West is best

Go west. That’s perennially good advice. West London has always set the pace. Diverse, desirable and just a bit different, this corner of the capital sizzles with style and character. Hanwell’s charming neighbours have lots to offer; from exploring Ealing’s bustling high street and the markets of Brentford to relaxing on the riverside at Richmond or in Kew’s famous garden. Illustrious company, but Hanwell is now a destination.

Music to your ears

Hanwell reverberates each year as it hosts the Hanwell Hootie. This is a loud, proud tribute to local hero Jim Marshall, who opened his first amplifier shop here in 1962. Famous early customers included Jimi Hendrix and Pete Townsend. The Hanwell Carnival, meanwhile, is the oldest and second largest annual carnival in London, with its lively parade attracting some 50,000 people.



The faces of Hanwell

Let's raise a toast to the tightly-knit, longstanding community of Hanwell. From Aggy, local hero and proprietor of The Golden Chip, who has been a familiar face for 40 years, to Claire serving delicious coffee and brunch across the road at W7 Emporium. This vibrant community shines all year but really comes to life during the annual Hanwell Carnival and music-infused Hanwell Hootie.
