Boston Manor House

Boston Manor Road

Boston Manor House is a fine Jacobean manor house built in 1623 and situated in parkland containing a lake and ancient cedar trees. The house was built for Lady Mary Reade whose second husband was Sir Edward Spencer of Althorp, Northamptonshire, an ancestor of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. It was purchased in 1670 by the Clitherow family and stayed in the family until it became the property of the local Council in 1924.

Today the magnificent 17th century State Rooms on the first floor, together with the Dining Room and Library on the ground floor, can be visited and enjoyed free of charge. Two of the State Rooms contain magnificent decorated plaster ceilings of 1623. Around the walls at Boston Manor House hang more than eighty paintings from the London Borough of Hounslow's local collection - mainly historic views of Brentford, Chiswick and Isleworth. The State Bedroom contains portraits of members of the Clitherow family by George Romney and Sir Godfrey Kneller.
