Syon Park Situated in the beautiful 200 acre parkland grounds of Syon House, a seat of the Duke of Northumberland yet only 8 miles from central London.
This is a unique opportunity to sample superb trout fly fishing on a small stillwater only minutes from central London.
The lake and grounds were originally constructed by Capability Brown in the 1760s, the six acre lake is regularly stocked with rainbow trout from Albury (and brown trout in season) of an average weight of 2lb 8oz up to in excess of 10lb.
Syon offers easily accessible trout fishing for the novice and more experienced angler alike in a beautiful environment on the outskirts of London. Just across the River Thames from Kew Gardens, Syon Park is only eight miles west along the A4 from Marble Arch. These water enjoys prolific hatches of olives, alders, sedge, buzzers and damsel flies.
Open every day from 08.00 until dusk, except Christmas Day.
For GPS users please use TW7 6BB which will bring you to the Syon Park entrance on the corner of ‘Park Road’ and ‘Church Street’, Old Isleworth. See map below.

Latest news from Syon Park, London
Updated 27th March
Day member entry will now be from 08:30, not 08:00, the same as all other Albury Estate Fisheries.
The end of the season is nearly upon us! That leaves only a few days to use the last of your green 17/18 fish tokens which will not be accepted from April 1st. The good news is that all fish tokens bought on the bank in the last days of March will be at the 17/18 season price, and be valid for the whole of the 18/19 season.
Both myself and Mackenzie spent a day each at the London Fly Fishing Fair. It was great to see lots of our regular members there supporting some amazing brands and businesses in the fly fishing world. We were able to talk to anglers in London who had heard of Syon Park but were unaware of what we were about and how we operate. Promoting our fishery at these events will hopefully lead to more new faces on the bank and some interesting times ahead for Albury Estate Fisheries!
The fishing has been on fire! (Wet, fishy, slimy fire admittedly). 211 out, mostly to Buzzers, BFD, and Cat’s Whiskers. Sunken daddies and a white minkey were a couple of the more interesting patterns catching fish this week. The fish were holding in the shallower bottom end of the lake at the beginning of last week but are now being caught all over the lake between 3-4ft.
Our reed bed redevelopment is nearing its finish and the new focused entry system is in place, with CCTV due in this week in the hut. The sign in/out book will be in place from April 1st, we will put reminders on the gate and in the hut.
Roy Lyu currently tops our Troutmasters March leader board with a stunning 9lb 12oz rainbow seen below.
We’ve planted a variety of different trees around the fishery in the last week. After the Taxodium fire (a real one this time) in the autumn, it’s crucial that we look towards the future and plant now to ensure that anglers in 50, 100, and 200 years will enjoy the shelter provided by ancient trees.
We’ve recently uploaded videos of Syon Park from the Sky! You can really appreciate the seclusion provided by Capability Browns tree line when you fly over the top and see the city sprawl around us. See Lakes From Above Page.
