Why Move to Twickenham
Although, inextricably linked with Rugby Union and home to its HQ, the largest rugby venue in the world, the affluent southwest London suburban town of Twickenham also has a huge amount to offer those who live here.
A particular favourite for families looking to settle down, Twickenham offers a riverside setting, which has great schools and plenty to occupy even the most demanding children so its no wonder its properties are in such high demand.
The centre of London is only 11 miles as the crow flies, however, the roads on the outskirts of the town are more often than not very congested making travel slow.
Much better to take the train.
Twickenham Station is in Zone 5 and offers regular services in and out of London. Nearby there are several more stations. St Margaret’s, Whitton, Fulwell and Strawberry Hill stations are also within the Twickenham post town.
A town of three parts, consisting of an attractive old area, a trendy and modern high street, which enjoys a café culture and peaceful green areas amid tree lined streets of mostly family sized residential properties.
The very English Twickenham Green regularly hosts cricket matches during the summer where spectators can retire after the game to one of the many bars and pubs lining the river nearby.
Crane Park and Marble Hill Park are ideal for a walk no matter what the weather, but in the summer, they come into their own, even hosting the odd BBQ or two.
A stroll along the embankment is always welcome. A peaceful place where you can relax and enjoy the views.
Wander down to the local high street and you are faced with plenty of up market designer shops, intermingled with some great independent specialist food shops. There is a quality fish mongers and organic butchers.
The local Farmers Market is one of London’s longest-running farmers’ markets, with many of the customers on first-name terms with the stallholders. A great place to buy your weekly groceries whilst socialising.
A Thames-side address has always been desirable. For those who call the town home, Twickenham is hard to fault. It has got the lot. Community, attractive green spaces, highly rated schools and just a hop into the Capital.
Schools & Education
There are many schools in Twickenham and the wider Borough of Richmond, including secondary schools, primary schools, universities, and kindergartens.
There is a high percentage of Ofsted rated “outstanding” state primaries to choose from including St Mary’s Church of England Primary School, Orleans Primary School and St Richard Reynolds Catholic Primary School.
Plus, older children attending secondary school also have some highly rated schools. St Richard Reynolds Catholic High School, Orleans Park School and Grey Court School are all “outstanding” schools.
Within 2 miles there are 5 independent schools. The closest is St Catherine School a mainstream, independently funded junior & senior school for girls aged between 3-18 years.
Whilst the city of London has a huge number of colleges and universities to choose from, there is only one which actually sits within the boundaries of Twickenham.
St Mary’s University was founded in 1850. Generally acknowledged to be the oldest Roman Catholic university in the UK. An excellent reputation boasting 98% of its graduates are in employment, vocation, or further study within 15 months of graduation

However, there are almost 600 properties for sale in the town and it is possible to purchase a one bedroom flat from £220,000.
There are a number of new build apartments available under a “shared ownership” scheme, these start from £153,000 for a two-bed property.
