Twickenham is well known for its national rugby stadium that plays host to England Rugby matches as well as the annual Varsity match and numerous club fixtures. It’s also a concert venue, which has hosted Bon Jovi, Rod Stewart and the Help for Heroes concert in recent years. The stadium comolex also benefits from a Marriott Hotel and Virgin Active health club.
Twickenham is a popular destination for tenants and buyers given its close proximity to Richmond upon Thames (pubs, restaurants, shops) and it represents great value for money being some 20-25% cheaper. It also fronts the River Thames and the mainline railway station offers a fast service into London Waterloo.
The areas of Twickenham Green and Strawberry Hill area particularly popular with families due to the range of highly regarded schools such as Waldegrave School for Girls which was rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. The area also offers close proximity to open spaces such as Bushey Park, Marble Hill Park and Richmond Park. Community activities such as club cricket, fetes etc are common. Teddington adjoins Twickenham and attracts professionals, families and corporate clients looking for quality accommodation and good transport links; there is a mainline station with services into London Waterloo and the area also offers easy access by road to Central London, M3 / M25 and Heathrow Airport.
Isleworth is also a popular destination being close to Chiswick, Richmond and Twickenham. Home to the former Brunel University, the area offers excellent transport links including a mainline railway station, nearby underground station (Piccadilly Line) and easy access to the M4 / Central London. The area also benefits from a number of modern apartment developments. Old Isleworth is a jewel that is tucked away and which overlooks the Thames. Offering a mix of period and modern property and close proximity to Syon Park, this is certainly worth a visit.
