Guide to Teddington
Perched on the north bank of the Thames sits the affluent south-west London suburb of Teddington.
The name “Teddington” comes from the name of an Old English tribal leader, Tuda. It was known in Saxon and Norman times as Todyngton and Tutington.
Today, Teddington is known for its long high street, which features pubs, restaurants, gyms and more. The town is also known for its pedestrian suspension bridge, which presides over the lowest non-tidal lock on the Thames.
Houses in Teddington vary widely; the town plays host to many properties suitable for investment, but also many detached family homes and flats to rent.
