Syon House online: information and bookings

Syon House is built on the site of a medieval abbey dissolved by King Henry VIII in 1539. In 1547, his coffin was brought to Syon on its way to Windsor for burial. It burst open during the night and in the morning dogs were found licking the remains! This was regarded as a divine judgement for the King's desecration of Syon Abbey. In 1597, Henry Percy, the 9th Earl of Northumberland, took possession of Syon House and it has remained in the family for over 400 years.

In the 1760s Robert Adam created some of his finest interiors at Syon House for the first Duke of Northumberland. Feted as 'one of the finest villas in Europe', Syon House was remodelled in the grand neo-classical style thus creating a fashionable home, in which the first Duke and Duchess could entertain on a lavish scale.

The gardens at Syon have been renowned for their extensive collection of rare trees and plants since 'Capability Brown' landscaped the park during the mid 18th century. Within the 40 acres of garden there is the Doric column bearing Flora, goddess of flowers, a Rose Garden and a lake, which is a haven for wildlife.
