Need to know more about the area?
Charming Teddington is an extremely popular place to live in South West London, particularly amongst families. It is a less congested area with traditional values, still located within easy reach of Central London.

The pretty high street is also a real draw to the area with its broad range of boutiques, cafes and restaurants; as well as Teddington Lock & the footbridge nearby (built late 19th century), where river craft of all shapes and sizes provide entertainment for riverbank spectators.
