Situated in west London, Teddington is a peaceful area which is located upon the River Thames. However, the Thames is a different creature in this area than in other parts of London as its only in Teddington that it ceases to be tidal. Although the river dominates the landscape, only cyclists and pedestrians are able to cross here, reducing the amount of traffic and giving it a much quieter feel.
Teddington Lock is quite a notable feature which is made up of three separate locks and includes a barge lock which is 650 feet in length. This makes it the largest on the whole of the Thames and is the marker for the tidal upstream limit.
More of a village than a town, Teddington has more than its fair share of outdoor space and is perhaps most famous for Bushy Park. The second largest royal park in the country, Bushy Park has herds of both fallow and red deer who are surprisingly unfazed by either visitors or cars. As well as its wildlife, Bushy Park has beautiful features, including a baroque water garden and golden figure of Diana.
The area has plenty of high class housing, with large, sprawling architecture with period features. Along the riverside there are a few more modern developments including offices. Despite its proximity to London, the area is best described as sleepy with a much more relaxed feel than can be found elsewhere.
When you’re not sightseeing you’ll find there’s plenty of places to grab a quiet pint, or patisseries to sit and enjoy a cake (or two!). For real nightlife you’ll need to travel somewhat but this isn’t really what the charm of Teddington is about.
