Interesting things about Uxbridge in Hillingdon

Uxbridge is one of the most favoured locations in the London Borough of Hillingdon. It is busy but still manages to keep a local feel thanks to the great setting and close proximity to open countryside. With good connections on the Metropolitan and Piccadilly Lines and Heathrow Airport to the south, this is one of the best connected areas in the whole of the capital too.

At Finefair we have spent years working on improving the quality of our services so we can say we are the number one for estate management Hillingdon has to offer. As part of our service we get to know about the best areas so we can offer advice to investors and tenants alike. Here are some of the best things about Uxbridge in Hillingdon.

The Grand Union Canal

The waterway is an incredible piece of scenery and there are plenty of riverside pubs to enjoy. It is a great route for walking, cycling, or boating. Not many areas can offer such close proximity to this kind of beautiful feature.

There are two shopping centres

Close proximity to leisure facilities is a big attraction for buyers and tenants alike. Uxbridge is great for people who like retail therapy. There is even an indoor market.

The countryside is on the doorstep

Rural scenery is hard to find in London but Uxbridge residents have plenty to enjoy. First there is the Alderglade Nature Reserve. Just beyond the border of the Borough is the Colne Valley Regional Park.

Brunel University

The highly regarded public research university opened in 1966 and has colleges of Business Arts and Social Sciences, Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences, and Health and Life Sciences. The students bring life to the town, including with volunteering. There is also a full calendar of events on offer.

A wealth of military history

Surprisingly until 2010 there was an active Air Force Station in the area. During the Battle of Britain there was a huge amount of activity in the area, including at an operations bunker on the site. This is now a popular tourist attraction.
