Living in Brentham

Brentham Garden Suburb is one of Ealing’s most attractive and important conservation areas.  Built in a distinctive architectural style with a semi-rural feel, there is also a strong sense of community among our residents.

“I want each of us to say not that this house is mine but this estate is ours.”

Henry Vivian, 1901. Founder of Brentham Garden Suburb.

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.
