Uxbridge has an interesting history as the site of the attempted negotiations between King Charles I and the Parliamentary Army during the English Civil War. The public house at the centre of those events, since renamed the Crown & Treaty, still stands and is worthy of some investigation. The pub is Grade II* listed, and dates from 1576. There is even an album named after the pub by mercury prize nominated band Sweet Billy Pilgrim. The pub does very good food and also has a fine outdoor bar for the summer months. You can find the historic inn on Oxford Road at postcode UB8 1LU for your sat navs.
The trails in the park are great for dog walking so you'll probably see other owners on a fine day.
