Bedford Park Area Guide
The Bedford Park area is described as the worlds’ first garden suburb and is located in the North East of Chiswick. 24 acres of land, containing many fine trees were purchased by Jonathan Carr in 1875 and together with firstly the architect Edward Godwin and later the acclaimed Richard Norman Shaw, created the beautiful houses within Bedford Park. Much of Bedford Park is now in a conservation area and most of the early buildings are Grade II listed.
Bedford Park is within easy reach of the shops and amenities on Chiswick High Road and is situated with Turnham Green tube station to one side and Chiswick Park tube station to the other.
The annual Bedford Park Festival which runs over two weeks in June is a fantastic event which encompasses concerts, art exhibitions, poetry readings, children and community events and culminates in the Fete, which is extremely popular.
