Like neighbouring Kingston-upon-Thames and Richmond, Twickenham is leafy, highly desirable and pricey. There are some stunning terraced properties, many dating back to the 19th century, with riverside properties in particular fetching some of the highest prices. Restaurants, bars and shops veer towards the upmarket, however if it’s high street shopping you’re after you’ll need to head to Kingston. On match days fans flock to Twickenham Rugby Stadium in their droves (which also happens to be the largest rugby stadium in the world) creating havoc on the surrounding roads. There is no underground in this neck of the woods, but trains run from Twickenham Station to Waterloo every 5 minutes.
