About the Area

Bedford Park is a very special, quiet, leafy and architecturally homogeonous estate built in the late 1870s after the advent of the District Line to West London. The original houses and public buildings in this conservation area are listed grade II and are built in the Aesthetic Movement manner so loved by Norman Shaw. It maintains its artistic and cultural traditions which culminate annually in a 2-week long summer festival of music, art photography, all-the-fun-of-the-fair and children’s events organised by St Michael and All Angels Church.

Chiswick High Road, with its wide pavements and continental cafe atmosphere has numerous specialist shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Access to Central London via Hammersmith or Shepherd’s Bush is straightforward; the 94 bus follows the Roman road to Notting Hill and Oxford Street. Turnham Green station is five minutes' walk and is served by the District Line and, during off-peak hours, by the Piccadilly. The M4, M3 and M40 motorways are easily accessible.

The large family houses in Bedford Park have attracted city and locally employed executives and their families. There are excellent private and state primary schools in Bedford Park and access to some of London's premier secondary schools (St Paul's, Latimer, Godolphin, Westminster) is not difficult.

The whole area has a distinctly village atmosphere with its own small but busy Post Office, attractive pub - the Tabard which has beautiful Wiliam de Morgan tiles; St Michael and All Angels church caters for the most exacting spiritual needs as well as being the musical and cultural focal point in the area for those lucky enough to live in the area.
