Our estate agents spend lots of time traversing the streets of West London, it is an area we love and know, so we have put together this guide for the ultimate day out in West London.
Get fuelled up for your big day ahead with brunch at Over Under Earls Court, the self-reputed home of ‘Banging brunch. Great Coffee. Good vibes.’ – we can’t argue with them. Over Under offer an Instagram worthy selection of brunch dishes including sweetcorn fritters, cheese toasties, and, not forgetting, endless amounts of avocado. They also serve a mean cup of coffee, needed for your ambitious day ahead.
Visit the Griffin Brewery, steeped in history, heritage, and inspirational insight into the art of ale-making. The tour lasts around two hours and finishes with the reward of a sampling session. The Griffin Brewery has been making beer since the 18th century, winning numerous awards over hundreds of years. Now, the brewery is most known for being the home of ‘London Pride’ the iconic ale of London, brewed in Chiswick since 1959, named after the ‘London Pride’ flower that survived in the rubble of war-time London.
To avoid the 3pm slump, our Estate Agents prescribe a walk around Chiswick House and Gardens. Chiswick house is a breath-taking example of 18th-century architecture. The third Earl of Burlington designed this Roman-style villa inspired by his travels of Italy. The house is surrounded by glorious gardens: close your eyes and imagine you are wandering the royal villas of Rome.
For dinner, our estate agents love La Trompette, this restaurant serves enchanting French food. The restaurant has been open for over 20 years and has received acclaim and a wide number of awards as well as a Michelin star. La Trompette serves some of the best food in London. Expect French classics such as onion soup, cote de boeuf and mille feuille and if you cannot make up your mind there is a divine tasting menu.
After dinner grab a taxi or take a riverwalk and head to the Eventim Apollo, also known as the Hammersmith Apollo, or Hammersmith Odeon, and catch a comedian, singer, or play. The Apollo opened in West London in 1901 the Grade II-listed building was London’s first Edwardian Theatres. The venue has hosted a range of well-known and world-famous talent such as The Beatles, David Bowie, and Ella Fitzgerald.
