Bedfont (historically East Bedfont) is a suburban district and ward in West London, centred WSW of Charing Cross and from Heathrow Airport. It straddles the old and new Staines Road (A30 and A305) in the west of the London Borough of Hounslow. Bedfont occupies the land north of a railway line, south of Heathrow's southern perimeter road, west of Baber Bridge on the River Crane, marking the boundary of Hounslow, and east of the Surrey boundary at Ashford and Stanwell. As such it includes the area informally known as North Feltham and the neighbourhood of Hatton. Its south-western parks and streets are contiguous with the larger district of Feltham and this part immediately adjoins Feltham railway station on the Waterloo to Reading Line and which has two branch line services, to Windsor and Weybridge. The ward is also served by Hatton Cross bus and tube station on the Piccadilly Line. Bedfont has a large central conservation area around Bedfont Green and a majority of Bedfont's homes are mid-sized, the most common type of housing being estate-built semi-detached homes on variable plot sizes.
East Bedfont is one of the ancient parishes of Middlesex. From 1894 to 1930 it was part of Staines Rural District and from 1930 it was part of Feltham Urban District. In 1965, Feltham Urban District was abolished, becoming part of the London Borough of Hounslow.
