Hounslow

Historic Hounslow was for centuries a resting place for travellers on their way to central London. More recently, Hounslow Heath was the site of the UK's first civil airport, and Heathrow, just down the road, is a major employer. Hounslow's main shopping area is the high street, and the Civic Centre in nearby Lampton Road houses Hounslow Council.
