Situated opposite Chiswick Park tube station and cut off from the surrounding area by railway tracks in the late 19th century, this Wildlife Trust reserve has developed into a lively ecological community.
Gunnersbury Triangle became one of the London Wildlife Trust's first reserves when it was saved from development by a campaign run by local people.
Since the end of the Second World War, the woodland here has grown up naturally and the reserve has become a sheltered birch and willow woodland with attractive pond, marsh and meadow.
Hidden away, the reserve opens up before you – so follow the nature trail, listen out for birds or the rustle of a hedgehog, look out for the tunnels of field voles, or keep an eye out for interesting spiders and ladybirds.
There is free access every day and the site is staffed two days a week so just call if you'd like to find out when.
Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
