Where to Stay in Twickenham
There are a number of notable neighbourhoods in the Twickenham area that offer great accommodation within easy walking distance of many top local sights and attractions. St. Margarets is a popular location for its excellent transport links, and for its proximity to Twickenham Stadium and the green fields of Marble Hill Park, while East Twickenham offers riverside views and a short commute to the distinguished suburb of Richmond. While slightly further afield, the neighbourhoods around Hampton Hill provide residents with green spaces of their own, in addition to the links of Fulwell Golf Club and the historic residence of Hampton Court. Though Twickenham is generally a safe area of London, visitors are advised to keep an eye on their possessions, particularly during game days, as pickpockets tend to operate within the busy crowds.
Facts About Twickenham
Perhaps best known as being the home of English rugby, Twickenham has grown up and expanded around the famous Twickenham Stadium; it now consists of an extensive and affluent town centre, and a historic riverside area replete with 18th century buildings and pleasure grounds. A neighbourhood steeped in history as much of the rest of London, here are some of our favourite facts about Twickenham new visitors will find fascinating:
- Twickenham is the second largest stadium in the UK, with a capacity of 82,000. At the time of its first international game, in 1910, the stands could only hold 20,000 spectators.
- Twickenham has three grand period mansions offering public access: York House, Marble Hill House, and Strawberry Hill House. In addition, Hampton Court, the famous residence of King Henry VIII, lies just beyond its outskirts.
- Twickenham was home to the world’s first industrial production facility for gunpowder, with factories set up in the 18th century. Unsurprisingly, in the years that followed, there were frequent explosions and loss of life.
- The stadium is colloquially known as The Cabbage Patch. This is because the land on which the stadium was built was once used for growing the eponymous vegetables.
- Twickenham Stadium is the site of the first ever sports radio broadcast (England vs Wales in 1927) and the first ever sports television broadcast (the 52nd Calcutta Cup in 1938). On a related note, it was also the first stadium in Europe to offer unlimited Wi-Fi!
Cost of Living in Twickenham
Though less expensive than some of the more central parts of London, rental prices in Twickenham can still be relatively high for most properties. Average monthly costs can range anywhere from £700 to £2,000+, making serviced accommodation an increasingly viable option for longer term travellers, particularly when taking into account the many benefits and additional perks that come from extended stays with TheSqua.re.
Day to day activities unfortunately offer little in the way of savings. Weekly travel passes (for Zones 1-2) can run to upwards of £35, though there are discounts available for certain residents, while meals out can range from £15 for a meal for one to £55 for a three-course dinner for two. The reasonably low price of local groceries does however mean that this expenditure can be offset by stay-at-home meals, always a viable option thanks to TheSqua.re’s fully-equipped kitchens. Money can also be saved on local entertainment, including theatres and cinemas, with a whole selection of inexpensive ticket prices and membership options.

Delicious!

The Twickenham area is served by several stations and lines: Richmond (District Line), Hounslow East (Piccadilly), Strawberry Hill and Twickenham (National Rail). These stations are arguably the most efficient ways of getting out and about, with Day Travelcards available to purchase (accepted through Zones 1-5) for £18.10.
London is of course famous for its iconic red buses, and these can both be a great way of sightseeing during travel. Buses in particular are exceptionally useful: they can be boarded with a simple tap of a Contactless Payment Card, Travelcard or Oyster (£1.50 for a single fare, £4.50 for a day of bus-only travel), and run over 700 routes, including 52 night services. Black cabs are another useful way of travelling around the city, and many of the cab drivers can also offer unique insights and local knowledge of the various areas. These can be a little pricey though, so make sure to use sparingly.
Weather in Twickenham
Due to a generally temperate climate throughout much of the UK, the weather in Twickenham can be quite unpredictable, with temperatures ranging from below freezing during winter, to dry and balmy heights of thirty and above in the summer. This unpredictability can however mean that even in the warmest months, rain may still be just a cloud away, so visitors are advised to pack wet-weather gear for all times of year. September is usually a good time to visit Twickenham, as this month offers warm days and comfortably cool evenings, allowing travellers to maximise their time away and make the most out of their city break.
