The Brentham Garden Suburb in Ealing, west London, is no ordinary group of 680 houses and flats. The first garden suburb to be built on ‘Co-partnership’ principles and an inspiration for the later, larger and more famous Hampstead, it has made a mark on twentieth-century domestic architecture, town planning and social housing out of all proportion to its size.

In 1969 Brentham Garden Suburb was designated a conservation area. The Brentham Society was formed in the same year to support and maintain the character of the area.

The Labour, Co-operative, Arts and Crafts, and Garden City movements are all part of the Brentham story. The suburb was designed to a plan by the leading garden city architects Barry Parker and Raymond Unwin, with houses, mostly in the Arts and Crafts style, by George Lister Sutcliffe and Frederic Cavendish Pearson.

The Brentham Society runs guided walks around the suburb. For more details click here.
