Come and discover Johnsons Island and its friendly artists in our unique setting on the Grand Union Canal. Expect a warm welcome, a glass of Pimms and the opportunity to buy or commission work directly from our talented artists.

The Brewery Tap will host a barbeque across the footbridge from the island all weekend.

Johnson’s Island is home to a flourishing colony of artists and craftspeople. It is situated beside the first lock linking the Thames to the Grand Union Canal with narrow boats and barges moored peacefully nearby. Visitors can witness the wildlife and tranquillity that inspires the artists. Much the same view was revealed to Samuel Pepys as he sailed into Town Wharf for illicit assignations with Brentford ladies! The
island is reached by footbridge from the Brewery Tap in Catherine Wheel Rd, a famous Brentford musical pub.
