Here's what people have said about Syon Park:

" It is like going out into the country for the day, & yet so close to the centre of London. There are cows grazing in the fields & water meadows, the kids loved seeing them."
"Fabulous gardens, I think the Duchess has re-vamped more than Alnwick garden!"
'"I love to see the bedding schemes, gives me some great ideas for my pots & containers at home"
'"There is so much to see, we spent all day there."
