To sum up Hounslow in a few words - Black, bleak, dirty, knackered old dump sitting on the end of one of the worlds busiest runways!
In Harmondsworth (The posh end of West Drayton)... things are rapidly going downhill.
If you love breathing in diesel fumes all day long, then this is the place for you. I would much rather live in Hull than this big fat dump.
This place used to be exciting, racy & dare I say classy! Not any more, it is now the home of a serious infestation of petro $$$ chaviness.
It IS special, but more in the institutional sense of the word. It tries hard to be Notting Hill's cool brother & Camden's cousin but fails.
