Gunnersbury Park is the perfect place to watch the seasons change. As leaves turn to gold, conkers line the ground beneath and the air starts to turn crisp, there is no better time to come and explore our beautiful surroundings.

 

Inside the Museum, you’ll find stories about prominent local people, both from history and the modern day. Our fun and interactive galleries will guide you through our shared local history and our helpful and knowledgeable team will be on hand to answer all your questions.
