A locals' guide to TW1

"Twickenham has a lot to offer, including many pubs by the Thames with gardens that open out right onto the river bank."

Greg Boxer

"There are some fantastic views along The Embankment in Twickenham looking towards Eel Pie Island!"

Adam O'Leary

"Strawberry Hill House is a stunning place. Enjoy the gardens for free or take a breather in their nice café round the back."

Where do TW1 locals go?

Armstrong's Family Butchers

Armstrong's are first class in every way. Excellent flavour to all the meats, there's a good selection of cheeses and cooked hams, and the lamb shanks are enormous!

Le Salon Privè

A charming French restaurant serving a lovely steak!

The Turk's Head

Great pub, great food and a great atmosphere! They always play rugby on the TVs too.

Sunshine & Ravioli

A lovely café and lunch venue that is extremely popular with the local crowds. Owner Maurizio is a local character who knows everyone and makes a mean coffee.

Ches's Trattoria

During the day this place functions as a greasy spoon café usually full of builders, but in the evening it turns into an amazing, authentic, family run Italian restaurant. The food is to die for and because they don't have an alcohol licence, its BYOB!

North Stables Café

A quirky place for a coffee and cake, while walking along Twickenham's Riverside.

St Margarets Fair

Held once a year, it's a great day out for all the family - live bands, face painting and traditional games.

The Aleksander

Under new management, this pub is a great stop off when walking between Twickenham and Richmond!

Pasta Di Piazza

Delightful food and ambience and only a 7 minute walk from Twickenham Station!

Marble Hill House

This beautiful 18th century Georgian house is set in stunning parkland close to the Thames. You can go on a guided tour of the house for a fee or just enjoy the park for free.

The Cabbage Patch

Taking its name from nearby Twickenham Stadium's nickname, The Cabbage Patch deserves the Triple Crown honour as THE rugby pub in London, if not the UK!

Harris + Hoole

There are some delicious coffees and cakes on offer in this popular, relaxing café.

York House Gardens

A beautiful garden on the banks of Thames in Twickenham with sculptures made from renowned Italian white Carrara marble.

The Crown

Gorgeous gastro pub near Marble Hill Park - great for Sunday roasts but book ahead!

Why do you find TW1 a great place to live?


"I love The Crown pub next to Marble Hill Park for a Sunday Roast."

April 2015


"It may be small but St Margarets rocks. Great cafes and independent shops - and within walking distance of Richmond."

February 2015


"St Margarets has a pretty village feel within walking distance of Richmond and the River Thames. There is a strong community with street parties and fairs and lots of great cafes and restaurants. Marble Hill Park is a beautiful park right on the banks of the river Thames and next to the foot ferry which can take you over to Ham House and Petersham."

May 2011
