| Events in Hanwell | 10 Places to Stay

Hanwell is a west-London suburb located between Ealing and Southall. A former farming village, it expanded with the coming of the railway in 1838. The Wharncliffe Viaduct, engineered by Brunel, was built to cross the Brent Valley, and it remains Hanwell's most imposing landmark. Lots of houses and schools were constructed. The Cuckoo School for poor children, opened in 1856, later enrolled one pupil destined for greatness: Charlie Chaplin. Parts of the old school now house the community centre. A typical feature of Victorian Britain was the "lunatic asylum". Parts of the Hanwell asylum have survived, including the gatehouses and stretches of boundary wall. From the same period, St Mary's Church exemplifies 1840s Gothic Revival architecture. At the Grand Junction Canal, meanwhile, six locks have been declared a Scheduled Ancient Monument, with Brunel's Three Bridges standing near the site of a demolished windmill. A more contemporary landmark is the 1937 art-deco clock tower on Hanwell Broadway. Nature-lovers will adore Brent River Park, a huge expanse incorporating Brent Lodge Park with its small zoo and Millennium Maze; meadows, gardens and woodlands; recreation grounds; waterways; sports facilities including a golf course; and Elthorne Park, site of the annual Hanwell Carnival.
