Chiswick Property Finder

Our Chiswick Property Finder

Chiswick is a jewel in the West London crown that occupies a meander of the River Thames. Lying between Kew to the South and Hammersmith to the East, it has something to offer to everyone. We hope that our Chiswick Property Finder Guide will help you discover this neighbourhood.


Why move to Chiswick?

From elegant Norman Shaw architecture in Bedford Park to exploring the delights of Devonshire Road and Turnham Green Terrace, this little enclave of West London has no end of culture and charm.


Schools in Chiswick

Chiswick has a plethora of excellent state and independent schools. Here are a few of the best:

Primary State Schools

Belmont Primary School is a popular state primary school just a short walk from Chiswick High Road and has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted.

Grove Park Primary School is located in a popular family area and has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted.

Independent Prep Schools

Orchard House School  is a close-knit Chiswick prep school situated in leafy Bedford Park. It offers a wonderfullly nuturing approach with excellent academic results. There are plans for the school to merge with nearby Chiswick & Bedford Park Prep School, resulting in more facilities and a greater access to specialist teaching.

Falcon School for Boys Pre-Prep is situated in Burnaby Gardens, W4. It is a vibrant independent day Pre-Prep School for boys from 3-7. From the age of 7 boys can then transfer to the Prep School, which is located in Richmond.

Secondary Independent Schools

Latymer Upper School is an independent, co-educational day school taking children from the age of 7 (into the Prep School) through to 18 years.  It is situated on King Street in Hammersmith, close to adjoining Chiswick High Road.

Council Tax

One very important part of the Chiswick Property Finder Guide is the council tax. The majority of Chiswick is in the London Borough of Hounslow although some parts of the W4 postcode lie in the London Borough of Ealing. Council tax varies between the boroughs, but Chiswick council tax generally starts at around £1,150 for Band A and goes up to just above £3500 for Band H.

Open Spaces

There is an abundance of green, open space in Chiswick including Turnham Green, Chiswick Common, Gunnersbury Triangle, Chiswick House Gardens, which boasts an award winning café, and that is just for starters.

Dukes Meadows, land that was formerly owned by the Duke of Devonshire, has now been developed into a recreational centre. It includes a rugby club, football pitches, a hockey club, several rowing clubs and a golf course.

And if that is not enough, for those who enjoy life on the water (and in the club bar after some tacking and jibing), there are a number of rowing and sailing clubs such as London Corinthian Sailing Club.
