The Isleworth Society exists to promote the preservation and conservation of one of the oldest Thames riverside communities to be found in London. With its unique blend of history, buildings and community we believe Isleworth is worth treasuring and preserving for future generations.

With 300+ members we are an active voice in the community working with London Borough of Hounslow, developers and local people to do our best to ensure that the development of the area is sympathetic with its history. 

We value your opinion and ideas so either contact us via the Contact Us Page or if you have a point of view or an Isleworth memory share it with us and other site visitors via the Guest Book Page.
