Located in Middlesex, Uxbridge has a compact town centre, with the Grand Union Canal lazily meandering its way through it. Various bars and places to eat litter the canal side and if you were to walk its length you could walk from Birmingham to London, meaning there are some great walks located on and just off the canal.
Being just inside London, Uxbridge boasts excellent travel options to the capital and beyond, with the M25 and Heathrow airport being a stone's throw away. It also lies right at the end of both the Piccadilly and Metropolitan lines, which take you directly to the thick of the action in London. The Chimes shopping centre is a focal point for many in this town, offering a great range of shopping and dining options. It also has a modern multi screen cinema located within the centre. In addition, the Pinewood Studios are located a few miles from Uxbridge where classic films such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mission Impossible were made.
