Syon House and Park

London

London Landmarks

It is the only mansion in London still in hereditary ownership.Originally the site of a medieval abbey, Syon was named after Mount Zion in the Holy Land. Syon was dissolved by the infamous King Henry VIII in 1539.

Syon Abbey had become well-known for its spiritual learning, public preaching and library. It was favoured and visited by King Henry VIII's first wife, Catherine of Aragon, and also played a part in the history of Henry VIII and his departure from the Catholic Church. Rumour had it that in 1547, King Henry VIII's coffin was brought to Syon on its way to Windsor for burial. It burst open during the night and in the morning dogs were found licking up the remains!

Syon House is still the London home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland.
