The local area guide to living in Hampton Wick

An affluent neighbourhood found on the edge of London, in the London borough of Richmond upon Thames, Hampton Wick is a well to do district that borders Teddington, and one of the royal parks of London. Bushy Park, whilst still a Royal Park, is open to the public and has a range of outdoor activities available.

From fishing to model boating, wildlife plantations, and herds of deer, the park is also rather popular with horse riders. Hampton itself was formerly a manor house, with the town having existed since the Iron Age and Roman Occupation, and its current name likely comes from its being used as a harbour or off-loading area for supplies meant for the town or the manor itself.

Today, it’s particularly popular due to the nearby schools of excellent reputation, its proximity to London, and the easy access to transport and airports. Locally, the St. John’s Hampton Wick Church is a popular local landmark. Having been commissioned in the late 1820’s, it was constructed in a Gothic Revival style, and recently re-opened in 2010, with services having commenced afterwards.
