About Boston Manor House

Boston Manor House is one of West London’s lesser-known gems and a fine Jacobean manor house built in 1623. Set back from Boston Manor Road in Brentford, the three-storey building is situated in Boston Manor Park which contains a lake and ancient cedar trees.

Who we are

Boston Manor House. The original two gables that made up the 1623 house can be seen on the left.

Today Boston Manor House is open to the public 6 days a week with free entry to see our historic rooms. We offer a range of activities for adults and families throughout the year, as well as the chance for schools and other learners to have sessions onsite covering a range of subjects.

The House also has three meeting/conference spaces available for hire on the second floor. Our historic rooms are available for hire for everything from filming and photography to private hires for parties and weddings.

Boston Manor House is owned and operated by the London Borough of Hounslow.


The House was completed in 1623 for Lady Mary Reade. From the 1670’s, the House was owned by the Clitherow family, who would expand the house considerably over the following centuries. The House and the surrounding 20 acres was purchased by the Brentford Urban District Council in 1923 with the grounds opened as a public park in 1924.

Our regeneration project

The London Borough of Hounslow has been able to transform Boston Manor House with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund and a range of other funders. The Boston Manor: Engaging the 21st Century project has conserved the Jacobean manor house, whilst presenting it in a way that enables visitors to appreciate its history and beauty. The House has been conserved, restored and refurbished so it can enjoy a sustainable future, be appreciated by a wider audience, and be removed from the Heritage At Risk Register.



Boston Manor House employs a dedicated staff and volunteers made up of the Visitor Experience team, the Volunteer Team, the Learning Team and the Business Development Team.
