Woodlands, a tiny enclave in west London

Lying between Hounslow and Isleworth, Woodlands is a triangular-shaped cluster of tree-lined streets bounded by the Duke of Northumberland's river to the west, the railway line to the north and Worton Road to the south.

Before homes were built, the area was covered in orchards, which is how it got the name Woodlands. St John's Church and The Woodlands Tavern are two of the neighbourhood's main focal points.

Get back to nature on Hounslow Heath

Dating back to Norman times, this popular nature reserve attracts an abundance of flora and fauna. There are many rare spiders, bees and beetles, and you might even be able to spot Pipistrelle bats, voles and adders.

For animals of a different kind, head to Hounslow Urban Farm. It's one of the largest city farms in London, where you can see Siberian chipmunks, pygmy goats and ferrets, and enjoy pony rides, owl displays and even pig racing.

Absorb the atmosphere at Twickenham Stadium

A short ride from Woodlands is Twickenham Stadium, the largest rugby union venue in the world. The atmosphere at the home of England rugby - which can accommodate 82,000 fans - is exhilarating on match days. You can also take a tour of the stadium, going behind the scenes of the players' dressing rooms and walking pitch side.
