Tube: Kew Gardens Station

 
 

An attractive multi-cultural, multi-purpose arts centre on the river in Brentford, Watermans is a real draw in this part of town. The 175-seat theatre shows a wide selection of experimental and innovative productions, the small cinema focuses on international and art-house films, and there is also an art gallery, which mostly exhibits contemporary and multimedia work. Arrive early for whatever you're seeing and enjoy the attractive riverside cafe.
