The journey from The High Street, through the bustle of The Lanes is completed at The Waterside, where cooler air and open spaces create a wonderful combination of the urban and the rural. It will be a hive of activity. Canal boats moor at the dock, friends and neighbours meet for coffee and conversation in the square, weekend markets set out their stalls of fresh produce and street food.
For so many years, the water has been all but impossible to reach, and it is one of the defining elements of The Brentford Project that the water, the dock and pathways leading east and west have been liberated once again to be enjoyed and appreciated by a new generation of Brentford residents.
Seamlessly connected to The High Street, The Waterside and dock are lined with a cinema, cafes, bars and restaurants with plenty of places to sit, relax, and get together with friends. Tables spill out onto the cobbles, and willow tress cast refreshing shade.
