The nearby M4, M25 and Piccadilly train line provide easy access from Hounslow into London and because of this, it enjoys a status as a reasonably affluent commuter town. Indeed, many quality hotels have recently been built in the area in which larger companies choose to accommodate visitors and colleagues on business. Easy access to Heathrow airport, Wembley Stadium and Waterloo further enhance the town's reputation as a convenient area to reside. While the majority of businesses in Hounslow are small or local businesses, many larger international companies have recognised its potential and 'set up shop' here, providing a boost in the form of 'business tourism' to the local economy.
Hounslow Health is a large, public space which acts as the lungs for this community with its 200 acres being home to a surprising array of wildlife as an urban nature reserve.
