Syon House and Park
Syon House and Park can be found only a stone’s throw away from Kew Gardens, the spectacular residential home of the Duke of Northumberland. It was built back in 16th century in place of the Medieval Syon Abbey, under the orders of Henry VIII, and the family of the current owners took over the property in 1594. Before being taken to her execution in the Tower of London, Henry’s fifth wife, Catherine Howard, was kept imprisoned in Syon for just over a year.
The interior of Syon House is notable for its stark black and white marble hallway and startling Red Drawing Room. The park covers 200 acres in total, which features a domed conservatory and a zoo enclosure that holds a number of exotic snakes and fish for visitors to admire.
