Heston is a suburban area of the London Borough of Hounslow, west London. The residential settlement covers a slightly smaller area than its predecessor farming village, 10.8 miles (17.4 km) west south-west of Charing Cross and adjoins the M4 motorway but has no junction with it; Heston also adjoins the Great West Road, a dual carriageway, mostly west of the 'Golden Mile' headquarters section of it. Narrowly within its central ward boundary is Hounslow West tube station, meaning some of its population work at the Heathrow and Central London destinations using the Piccadilly Line.

Research Tips

Heston is one of the ancient parishes of Middlesex. The town of Hounslow straddled both Heston and the neighbouring parish of Isleworth. From 1894 Heston parish was part of the Heston and Isleworth Urban District, which was elevated to Municipal Borough status in 1932. In 1965 Heston and Isleworth Municipal Borough was abolished, becoming part of the London Borough of Hounslow.
