What locals say about Twickenham

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

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

About Twickenham

Twickenham is a large suburban town 10 miles southwest of central London and the administrative headquarters of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Twickenham expanded and increased in population. There are a large number of fine houses in the area, many of them Victorian. Twickenham is bordered on the south-eastern side by the River Thames and Eel Pie Island — which is connected to the Twickenham embankment by a narrow footbridge erected in 1957, prior to which access was by means of a hand-operated ferry that was hauled across using a chain on the riverbed. The land adjacent to the river, from Strawberry Hill in the south to Marble Hill Park in the north, is occupied by a mixture of luxury dwellings, formal gardens, public houses and a newly built park and leisure facility.
