- Syon House is the Duke of Northumberland's London home. Syon was the name of a monastery that Henry V built in 1413, although the Percy family (Dukes of Northumberland) have been living there since the Duke of Somerset rebuilt it in 1594. Robert Adam later performed an extensive and much praised 18th century revamp of the Elizabethan house. The gardens feature an important collection of trees, as well as a steam-hauled miniature railway and a glass and steel conservatory, available for special events, like weddings.
