Horsenden Hill

< Parks and Nature

Exploring Horsenden Hill, Perivale: From Horsenden Hill Visitors Centre there is so much to explore, starting with a walk along the Grand Union Canal. It acts as a wildlife corridor linking open spaces such as Perivale Wood, Horsenden Hill, Brentham open space and the Brent River Park.

Alongside the Visitors Centre there’s also a beautifully maintained kids adventure playground featuring a big pirate ship and hidden treetop lookout.

Just adjacent to the Visitors Centre is the Ealing Canoe Club. All ages and abilities are welcome. A wide range of canoeing activities are covered including recreational paddling, freestyle, BCU star awards and slalom.

Finally, of course there’s the wide open space of Horsenden Hill (which includes the Gruffalo Trail). On a clear day, the top of Horsenden Hill provides a stunning panorama of the surrounding areas. It’s also our favourite local spot for flying a kite!
