About Eastcote House & Gardens

Eastcote House once stood in what is now known as Eastcote House Gardens. Records suggest that there was a building on the site from at least the 16th century, but the House itself was demolished in the 1964 after falling into disrepair, leaving only the stables (shown above), the dovecot and the walled garden. The park is maintained by the Friends of Eastcote House Gardens, and they, along with London Borough of Hillingdon council, were recently awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help them progress their plans for the gardens. The funding will help to improve the gardens’ facilities, repair and improve the historic buildings, and excavate the site of Eastcote House.
