Attractions and Places to Visit in Uxbridge
Attractions in Uxbridge
Uxbridge has retained a sense of its history despite the inexorable developments of the 21st century. Originally constructed in 1858, Hillingdon Court was purchased by the state in 1925 and is now accessible to the general public. Hillingdon Court features a large garden space that is perfect for exploring.
Canals run through Uxbridge like veins-various companies operate tours of the canals at a nominal fee. Alternatively, find a tranquil escape from the bustle of the city in the beautiful Kew Gardens, Carville Hall Park or along the banks of the nearby River Thames.
Uxbridge, though, is perhaps most famous for the Battle of Britain bunker- a location where Winston Churchill dwelt during perilous periods in World War II. The bunker is now open to the public-tour guides are available to learn more about the history of the bunker and World War Two in general.
