Welcome to The Twickenham Museum Website. Here we reveal some of the history of Twickenham, Whitton, Teddington and the Hamptons. These villages, situated by the River Thames to the south-west of London, have a rich history going back thousands of years.

This material is the "virtual reality" part of the museum, which is housed in a small building that can only display, or store, a fraction of our recorded history.

Use our Timeline to follow events from the earliest days of 'Tuican hom' to the present. Try one of our Themed exhibitions and discover the historical sites and people. Read the stories behind the People, Places and Events of the area.

Look through our archive of photographs, maps, documents and paintings.

Whatever you do, enjoy your visit!
