Teddington

Teddington is situated on a long meander of the Thames between Hampton Wick and Strawberry Hill.

Mostly residential, Teddington stretches from the river to Bushy Park with a high street of shops, restaurants and pubs. There is a suspension bridge over the lowest non-tidal lock on the Thames, Teddington Lock.

Teddington railway station opened on 1 July 1863. Several carriages of a train that had stopped at the station were destroyed in an arson attack by suffragettes on 26 April 1913.

In 2021, Teddington was named as the best place to live in London by The Sunday Times.

Teddington Lock The left of this view looks very different now as the gravel pits were filled after the war with rubble from the Blitz. There are still plants and trees that have grown from the soil that was taken along with the rubble.
