Woodlands is a small area located in the borough of Hounslow, London between Hounslow and Isleworth/Spring Grove. It is an area roughly bounded by the railway line to the north, St Johns Road to the East, Twickenham Road to the south and Bridge Road / Worton Road to the west. It includes roads such as Woodlands Road, Woodland Gardens, Woodlands Grove as well as The Woodlands Tavern public house on St Johns Road.

The estate comprises mostly semi-detached houses built in the 1930s, although there are older buildings too. Before these houses were built the area was used as orchards, hence the name 'Woodlands'.

There is an organisation known as the WERFA (Woodlands Estate Resident Freeholders Association) which has a community hall in the small private park in the centre of Woodland Gardens.
