Visit Syon Park

Whilst your author often reacts against the cult of aristocracy, looking around large houses & estates remains a pursuit that engages many, and Syon Park in West London is undoubtedly an interesting example of such an estate, which reopened in March for the summer season.

Still home to the Duke of Northumberland, Syon Park is a 200 acre park just across the river from Kew Gardens, and has been home to the same aristocratic family for more than 400 years, then as now separated from ordinary Londoners by just a short distance, and a vast wealth gap.
