Any folks who live/ed in Twickenham, Teddington or Richmond borough in general? I am moving from US to London with my family next month. I have narrowed it down to these places based on locrating and general secondary search. But I’d love to get some first hand experience based information. Family, schools, safety, commute to London bridge are the key considerations.

Richmond , Wimbledon all day anyday

Richmond is suburbia done right. Green, safe and beautiful. Arguably the classic car capirla of the world 👀 Commute to London Bridge is rather long tho. I’d say around 45 by train and then tube.

Ive lived in Richmond, East Sheen and Putney. All good areas for a family. Twickenham and Teddington are not bad but not as nice as those I’ve mentioned

Twickenham and Teddington have parts that just don’t feel as safe. I also find Richmond and Putney to have nicer bars, restaurants, etc

I grew up in Kingston and went to school in Wimbledon, which isn’t far from these parts especially Richmond. It’s a beautiful place to live with your family and has lots going on too and some great schools. Underground isn’t the best because it’s south London but everything else is great. I myself will be moving back to those parts in a year or two once I start my own family.
