HILLINGDON Met.Line (Uxbridge), Piccadilly Line A LONDON TUBE RAMBLE to Swakeleys House and Ickenham Village. About 3 miles
Hillingdon is a white modern station perched above the roaring A40 - actually quite scary, and certainly unlike any other station on the network. From here you can get to Swakeleys Park, catch a glimpse of the superb Swakeleys House and have a look at the rest of Ickenham where there are some intriguing things to find.
From the station take the exit marked 'Long Lane' then turn left, ignoring the Hillingdon Trail sign on the right, Go second left down Swakeleys Drive. After about ten minutes you will come to the park entrance with green swing gate and info boards. From this point follow the directions from the ICKENHAM entry in reverse.
Hillingdon is just one walk from the many to be found at London Tube Rambles. There are architectural gems, beautiful country views, historic places and quirky buildings even in the most unpromising areas covered by the outer London Underground stations. Usually the discoveries are within a mile of the Tube - often only five minutes walk away.
