About the area
Set back a stone’s throw from Chiswick High Road, Barley Mow Centre is tucked away on Barley Mow Passage, which has long been an area of industrial importance since its base for the Sanderson Factor in the late 19th century. Just a short walk from the generous open spaces of Turnham Green and Chiswick’s Town Hall and War Memorial, Barley Mow Centre is at the heart of leafy Chiswick – a desirable West London suburb with a proud creative heritage on the banks of the Thames.
Barley Mow Centre is a ten-minute walk from two Zone 3 London Underground stations, Chiswick Park (District Line) and Turnham Green (District and Piccadilly Lines), which offer direct links to Central London. Overground, Chiswick’s mainline station - a 20-minute walk via Sutton Court Road - offers services to Waterloo taking less than half-an-hour. Barley Mow Centre’s road links are equally impressive, with the M4 motorway starting in Chiswick via Sutton Court Road, while the Great West Road also offers a direct route by car into Hammersmith and South Kensington. Car parking in and around Barley Mow Centre is reasonable with council-operated parking on Chiswick Common Road and along Chiswick High Road.
Young professionals can take full advantage of Chiswick High Road’s vibrant array of bars and eateries. Head east along Chiswick High Road and you’ll discover popular chains such as Bill’s, Byron and Pizza Express, as well as excellent independents such as Oddono’s, Bayley & Sage and the Buenos Aires Argentine Steakhouse on Turnham Green Terrace. Closer to home, The Lamb and Foxlow make the ideal locations for post-work drinks with colleagues and informal catch-ups with clients.
