Teddington Things to Do

  • Bushy Park

    Watch out for the deer. I'm serious. They rule the park, and when the stags get randy or the doe gets protective of her young they might get a bit aggressive. This is their world and you are a visitor in it. It's been that way since the park was inaugurated in 1529 as a Royal Park to serve King Henry VIII as his deer hunting ground. He lived nearby...

  • Landmark Art Centre

    The art centre really is a landmark - it's built into one. The former church is an impressive example of Gothic architecture, with flying buttresses propping up its immense walls. It's very out of place in sleepy, two-storey Teddington and it utterly dwarfs the church across the street.Inside there is now a community art venture - created as an...

  • St Mary's with St Alban

    Unlike it's more imposing neighbour, this little church has survived everything a thousand years of English history has thrown at it - the iconoclastic rage of King Henry VIII, the growing secularization of the country along with the concomitant dwindling of Sunday worshipers, not to mention a plague or three.The trick seems to have been mutual...

  • Teddington Lock

    Teddington Lock is a area of beauty where the river Thames meets the town and curves around it on its winding, snake-like journey into central London. Here are three locks used by different types of river boats, and a bow weir that is anchored to an island in the Thames. The island itself supports a footbridge that takes you across the river to...

  • Pinewood Studios Teddington

    You can't visit the studios unless you work there, but if you want to see where some of the best television in Britain was filmed you can make the short walk to Pinewood Studios Teddington. You can even hang around outside waiting to catch a glimpse of someone famous, but after spending two weeks working in Studio One and never seeing a single...

  • A fine old building.

    I had often walked past the magnificent old building you can see in the image, obviously an old church, which currently serves as an Arts Centre having been deconsecrated. One day recently, having a little spare time on my hands, I decided to go in and see what it had to offer. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, an art exhibition perhaps or some...

Teddington Restaurants

  • Indian

    A good value Indian a little out from the centre of Teddington. The service is good, and it must be popular with the locals because Mo Farah has been seen eating there (he's from Teddington). I don't remember anything that special about it, but then again there's so many good restaurants in Teddington it's easy to get complacent.

  • Spoilt by a simple thing.

    As I have mentioned in numerous other tips, specifically restaurant tips, I am a great believer in local knowledge and it was due to a local friend that we visited the King's Head Brasserie in High Street Teddington recently. Jonathan, a good friend who has lived in the area for some time, recommended it and specifically mentioned the service....

  • Amazing Thai

    It's cramped and it's busy but it's the best Thai food I've ever eaten. They offer a wide variety of options on the menu, with plenty of vegetarian dishes to choose from. The service was really friendly and efficient. There was nothing to complain about, except they probably need a bigger place to handle all the people who want to eat here.

  • Top Notch Pub Food

    It's not pub food, it's a brasserie. The King's Head in Teddington has a strong reputation with the locals for great food in a cozy Victorian pub setting. The food is simple, traditional fare, with a dash of elegance that makes it just a little bit special. Instead of chicken and potatoes, you get "half a roast free range corn-fed chicken, served...

  • Pub Grub and Famous Names

    Sitting on the Thames and next door to Pinewood Studios Teddington, this is a great place to grab some lunch or dinner and try and spot a few famous names down by the river. The likes of Johnny Depp, the cast of the Office and members of the Six Nations rugby teams have all had ales poured for them here. The food is really good for pub fare, and it...

  • Thamesside Restaurant

    For a riverside location in Teddington, this is excellent. For food and service it's just pretty good. The staff were excellent, just overworked, so struggled to deal with any request that wasn't routine.

    by antistar Written Jul 31, 2013

    Teddington isn't officially part of London, but it's impossible to tell it apart. Where Teddington, and all the other satellite towns of London, ends and where the big smoke begins is blurred by grey overbuild. Teddington is not on London's tube system, even though more outlying places like Uxbridge and Heathrow are. Instead the best connection to central London is via the trains station, which can whisk you to Waterloo in about 40 minutes.
