Hanwell Property Guide

With beautiful parks, charming architecture and a fascinating history, it's easy to understand why Hanwell estate agents see the area as one of West London's most promising real estate prospects.

Hanwell Property along the Canal

The area emerged from the spreading out of Ealing, and Hanwell is now becoming sought after. With its wide open spaces at Brent River Park South and The Brent Valley Golf Course, there are also smaller places you can visit for a nice picnic, such as Bunny Park. This quiet and pleasant area maintains a wonderful character.

  • Despite many theories surrounding the etymology (some scholars associate it with "Stream Frequented by Cocks" derived from the Saxon weille and hana), the origin of Hanwell's name remains largely unknown; its first recorded presence in history dates back to 959 AD with name "Hanewelle".
  • Beginning as a parish with routes along Uxbridge Road, the region soon expanded into an area featuring inns and public houses. Several beautiful historic churches and pubs continue to give the area its quintessential charm.
  • Today, Hanwell is home to several parks, locks, and community centres and is buzzing with activity throughout the year.
