A tiny riverside town just 10 miles outside the centre of London, Twickenham has real character and community. The river dominates the town, providing a picturesque setting for the streets, with a number of pubs dotted along the banks.
Eel Pie Island lies alongside Twickenham, accessible by a small footbridge. With hidden nature reserves and private roads, it’s an exclusive quarter that also has a number of art studios. At certain times of the year these studios open up to the public to exhibit and sell the artwork.
Eel Pie Island is where Twickenham Rowing Club is based, one of the oldest rowing clubs on the River Thames. Watersports, canoeing and rowing are all extremely popular in Twickenham and there’s lots of activity on the river all year round.
However, Twickenham is most famous for its stadium, the home of English rugby. Twickenham Stadium is the largest rugby stadium in the world and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. As well as hosting rugby matches, the stadium also has been the venue for concerts from stars such as Lady GaGa, Beyoncé, The Rolling Stones and U2.
Despite its diminutive size, Twickenham’s desirable location has attracted many notable figures over the centuries. Some of the past famous inhabitants have included Sir Alfred Tennyson, Thomas Twining (the founder of Twinings tea company), Alexander Pope, Louise Philippe I and King Manuel II of Portugal.
The impressive roll call of past residents means that there are many historical sites in Twickenham. From blue plaques to sculptures and gardens, there is a veritable treasure chest of historical delights to explore.
There is an abundance of outside spaces to enjoy in Twickenham as although it is a residential area with affluent housing, there are many riverside and green spaces too. Radnor Park is a popular spot, offering a riverside location in the Strawberry Hill district. As well as the river, it also features a bowling green, playground, grassy open space and World War I memorial.
