Syon Park, secret shoots

On Location

Syon Park in West London, on the border with Surrey and only a short distance away from Central London, is the perfect location for a family photography session.

This peaceful country estate is an urban oasis. It is home to 40 acres of gardens landscaped by Capability Brown and a stunning 19th Century Great Conservatory.

If you’ve not heard of Syon Park before or even visited, you may recognise it from its many appearances on screen. It’s been a filming location for Killing Eve, Poirot, The Madness of King George and Transformers. They are just a few of the titles to have been shot here.

And it’s not surprising, it is an impressive location with a superb conservatory, lush gardens, historic tree canopies, lakes and tidal meadows. But what is surprising is how few people visit and this is one of the reasons it is such a hidden gem for family photography shoots.

It’s the perfect place to spend a relaxed time with your family. For young children there are wide open spaces to enjoy, fairy houses to spot, terrapins to find and logs to climb.

And you want to arrive relaxed for your photography session so one less thing to worry about is where to put your car. There are plentiful parking spaces.
