Boston Manor House is a rare glimpse of the past in modern Brentford, a fine Jacobean manor house, surrounded by 34 acres of parkland.

About Boston Manor House and Park

Boston Manor Park is the largest green open space in Brentford with 34 acres of historic park, woodland, lake and meadow and is the setting for the fantastic Grade I listed Boston Manor House. The beautiful grounds gently slope down to the nearby River Brent, from which Brentford gets its name, and Grand Union Canal.

One of the earliest examples of the English Renaissance style in London, the mansion house has been called the best example of Jacobean architecture in England.

The interior is exceptional, particularly the decoration in the state drawing room which is magnificent, and provides a fascinating glimpse into the history of this area of London. It also houses a selection of paintings of the locality. Both the house and park have been the setting of many period films and TV dramas.

The parkland includes a large historic ornamental pond, fine old cedar trees, a nature trail, and a children’s playground. Recent additions to the park include a wildflower meadow, and the restoration of the walled garden.

Both park and house are undergoing substantial refurbishment in 2021, with the house and cafe facilities closed. The park, children’s playground, and Tennis Club will remain open for use as much as possible during the works this year. Once the project has been completed it will enable access to the whole of the conserved mansion house as well as providing new facilities – cafe and learning centre and an extensive programme of events and activities.
