Finding St. Francis by Car

When approaching from London on the A4 continue past the traffic lights at Gillette corner and St. Francis Church is about 300 metres on the left hand side.

If you are approaching from the West on the A4 there is no access to the church due to the central reservation. However, if you turn right into Wood Lane at the Osterley Hotel, and then take the first left into Northumberland Avenue, continue until the end and then turning left into Syon Lane, you can then turn left at the traffic lights back onto the A4 and will approach the church from the east.


Parking is permitted in the designated white boxes at the side of the Great West Road. There is no time restriction or parking charge provided you use the white boxes. Alternatively, there is plenty of parking along the roads behind the church (see map via the link above). The Church can be accessed via the alleyway in Northumberland Avenue, which runs alongside the Church.
