There are many reasons we love Hilton Syon Park, but here are five of the best...

Striking the perfect balance between a country escape and a city break, Hilton Syon Park offers peace, tranquillity and plenty of style. In the grounds of a 200-year-old estate, it's sophisticated, elegant, and is the height of modern wellbeing, all within easy reach of central London. There are many reasons we love Hilton Syon Park, but here are five of the best...

Hilton Syon Park

The estate's illustrious history

In the grounds of the Duke of Northumberland’s 200-year-old estate, Hilton London Syon Park is a contemporary hotel, the architecture of which contrasts (in all the best ways), with the classic design of the main house, which remains intact. Staying here is a little bit like staying in the very posh guest house of your aristocratic friends.

The beautiful grounds

The hotel is surrounded by the vast eponymous park as well as the manicured Pleasure Gardens of Syon House. They were famously designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, one of Britain's greatest landscape gardeners, whose other works include Blenheim Palace and Warwick Castle. The showpiece is its quarter-mile ornamental lake, which is surrounded by rare trees and flowers from around the world. You might also be curious about exploring Syon House - still the London residence of the Duke of Northumberland and his family. Designed by the architect Robert Adam in the 1760s, it's been in the same family for more than 400 years and certainly inspired Bridgerton vibes.

The ultra-modern spa

Amidst all that history, The Kallima Spa offers a completely different atmosphere. Just as elegant as the historic estate but achingly modern, it's a seductive, glittering space that's the height of contemporary wellbeing. From modern art from sensor triggered animal noises to the mirror mosaic statue, it's adult only and totally luxurious. Enjoy the 10-person Jacuzzi, the swimming pool, sauna, steam room and relaxation snug, as well as treatments from the luxury Italian brand, Comfort Zone.

The 'best-of-both-worlds' location

Alongside this haven of peace and tranquillity, visitors to Hilton London Syon Park also benefit from easy access to the centre of London if you wish to head into the city to explore. Just over the Thames from the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew (definitely worth a visit), it's a 20-minute taxi journey to either Richmond or Kew Gardens stations.

The home grown food

Food is a key component of a spa break at Hilton London Syon Park. The hotel has its own herb and vegetable gardens from which ingredients are sourced for the main restaurant. They have a formal dining area as well as The Terrace for afternoon tea on sunny days, and Brownies for convivial teas, coffees, a sundae bar and, of course, brownies.
