Home to Brunel University (named after the Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdon Brunel), Uxbridge is a bustling town centre with pedestrianised walkways, parklands, rivers, two large shopping centres, supermarkets, clothing stores and a new sports leisure complex incorporating the Grade II Listed Art Deco Uxbridge Lido opened in 1935.
The town played a key role during the Battle of Britain in 1940 when RAF operations were controlled from its airbase. The Uxbridge Underground Bunker can still be visited by appointment.
For about 200 years most of London's flour was produced in the area. In the 19th century the Kingsmill opened, and they're now one of the best known bread makers in the country.
