There’s a lot more to Twickenham than rugby. Among the attractions of this leisurely stroll you will pass Twickenham film studios, the rural retreat of landscape artist J.M.W. Turner, the handsome Palladian mansion of a royal mistress, and see the magnificent view across the Thames to historic Ham House and Richmond Hill.
Then meander along the riverbank past the homes of French royal exiles, meet the saucy Naked Ladies and take in Twickenham’s classic Thames waterfront and quirky Eel Pie Island, the home of rhythm & blues.
The walk finishes at Twickenham’s picturesque Church Street with its pubs, cafes, restaurants and independent shops. Or you can extend your visit to Strawberry Hill House, Horace Walpole’s ‘Little Gothic Castle’, Eel Pie Island Museum and Twickenham Museum.
