Take yourself off to Harmondsworth
Harmondsworth in west London has been around since at least the Domesday Book, where it receives a mention. It's now best known for being situated on the south side of Heathrow Airport; visit it while you can - half of the village will disappear if Heathrow's third airport is constructed. At the moment, visitors can explore the Nearby parkland and enjoy walks down to the banks of the River Colne, as well as the lovingly restored medieval Great Barn and church.
Get close to nature at Harmondsworth
Those looking for a rural escape should visit Harmondsworth Moor. Once a gravel quarry, it was restored and opened as a country park in 2000, making it the largest public park to be created on London for a century. Other gardens and parks in the area include Colne Valley Regional Park, Runnymede and Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens.
Paddington's relaxing delights
Travelling from Harmondsworth into central London is straightforward - simple take a train from Nearby West Drayton Station, which has direct services to Paddington. Once there it's easy to navigate to the capital's major sites via the underground network. Either that or stick close to Paddington itself with a trip to Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens, stopping off at one of the area's many eateries along the way.
