"A beautiful leafy suburb with great local schools and excellent transport links. We really like Crane Park for a long dog walk with its nature reserve and shot tower. The Whitton part of Twickenham has a quieter feel and 1930s charm. "

"Whitton is perfect for us. We moved here last year from Balham to start a family as the schools in Richmond Upon Thames are highly rated. Whitton is the quiet part of Twickenham, where you get slightly more for your money.

"I love watching the cricket on Twickenham Green in the summer. There are also some fantastic river walks in the area and on a summer's day, famous Marble Hill Park is great for a picnic."

"Whitton is a lovely place to live, some beautiful leafy roads, great schools and good local services. The transport links are brilliant, I can be in central London in 30 mins by train and on the M25 in 10 mins by driving down the M3. I have lived in the area now for 5 years.

"Twickenham is a town of three parts - the beautiful old part, the modern high street and the quiet, residential Twickenham Green area."

Chris

"Beautiful parks, great schools, close to London on the Overground and lots of waterways and wildlife."

Vaibhav

"Whitton is very peaceful and calm. The residents around where I live are quite friendly. The commute is very easy to central London as there is a direct National Rail service to Waterloo. All other interesting areas like Richmond, Twickenham and even Heathrow are close by. There are very nice parks not far like Richmond Park (my favourite) and Bushy Park....I love this area...."

"The world's first ever facility for the production of gunpowder was set up along the River Crane between Twickenham and Whitton. Unsurprisingly, explosions on the site were common and in 1758 one was felt as far as Reading!"
