Teddington is a popular, leafy area located within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames in South West London. It lies on the north bank of the River Thames and stretches inland from the river to Bushy Park.
Nominated for The Telegraph’s “High Street of the Year”, Teddington has a great range of high street stores, trendy boutiques and smaller independent stores. Broad Street and High Street also have a great selection of cafes and delicatessens including La Bottega, an Italian cafe serving fresh coffee, grilled paninis and homemade cakes.
Many of Teddington’s best restaurants and pubs are located along the waterside. The Wharf Restaurant serves up first-class British cuisine in beautiful surroundings, with wonderful views across Teddington Lock. The Tide End Cottage is a traditional pub that sits just 20 yards from the water and offers award-winning real ales and pub grub.
Green and leafy, Teddington has generous parkland and beautiful riverside walks along the towpath. The river at Teddington Lock is a haven for watersports enthusiasts who try out kayaking, canoeing, rowing and sailing. There is a swimming pool at Vicarage Road, and also at The Lensbury Club, a members-only sports club with swimming, tennis, golf and water sports.
