The Worst Things in Heston, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Heston.

The Worst Things
  • people with no regard for traffic laws in New Heston Road. Parking on zig-zags/pavement/bus stop/zebra crossing! I despise their "I'm alright Jack!" attitude!
  • When the schools let the children out, it's like a tsunami of kids, all dropping rubbish and ast food on the ground, using the surrounding streets as rubbish bins.
  • Town is second armpit, only loses to feltham.
  • Shortcut to M4 via services has now been removed by automatic bollards that come out of the road. Does anyone have a way round this? Applies to both north & South services.
  • State of the roads and the public telephone conveniences. Being told that you live in Hounslow by the post office.
  • In dangerously close proximity to Hounslow and Southall.
  • The people. A large collection of mixed cultures sounds like a nice thing, but sometimes it doesn't work. Especially after closing time at the Elm Tree.
  • In Heathrow's flight path some days.
