Twickenham is a town in Middlesex, famous for its rugby stadium, riverside walks and thriving cafe culture. If you're here during rugby season, you'll find the town is buzzing with visitors from all over the world – bars and restaurants will be busy, and the town comes alive with a blend of cultures. However, there's more to Twickenham than just rugby. Visit the bright white Strawberry Hill House, take a trip to Eel Pie Island which can only be reached by footbridge or boat, and explore Twickenham museum to delve deep into area history. If you want to venture further afield, Richmond Park, Kew Gardens and Hampton Court Palace are a short drive away.
