  1. About Hampton Wick

    Hampton Wick is an attractive Thames-side area, formerly a village, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames in London. Famous for its market gardens until well into the twentieth century, it is now commuter-belt territory, housing developments having been built on these areas. Such development is constrained, however, by Bushy Park and Hampton Court Park on the west and the River Thames to the east. Hampton Wick is just over the bridge from Kingston upon Thames.
