Osterley Park and House, built in 1570, is a fabulously cared for National Trust property. Our visit, as all our visits seem to go, was poorly timed with the weather. They’ve got a lovely green with deckchairs for when it is sunny, and as all NT houses go, they have a sweet little tearoom (though their Victoria Sponge had no cream in, just jam!) and secondhand bookstore. I found the gardens to be particularly beautiful, especially as the flowers were in bloom.
Osterley has its own tube station, is on the Piccadilly line, and just under an hour out from central London. The garden is open from 10am-5pm every day, and the house is open every day but Monday and Tuesday, from 11am-5pm. Find a price list for tickets here.
