"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...."
