Living in Heston area information and guide

Heston area overview

Most people know Heston in west London from the lovely M4 service station which shares it's name. Between 1929 and 1947 Heston Aerodrome functioned an airport. In fact it was from here that British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, flew to Germany three times for unsuccessful talks with Adolf Hitler in the late 1930's which produced the infamous "Peace for our time" speech. It's most famous son is Jimmy Page, guitarist of legendary rock group Led Zeppelin. Heston is sandwiched between the M4 and the Great West Road so it's very well connected for car commuters. The area is a bit light on tube stations but Osterley Station on the Piccadilly line is just on the border of the district.
