Beautiful Hampton Hill
Hampton Hill in leafy south west London is located close to Richmond, Teddington and Twickenham. Perhaps its most famous landmark is Bushy House, home to the National Physical Laboratory, where the likes of Alan Turing and Robert Watson-Watt once plied their brain-baffling trades. It was also where Barnes Wallis carried out tests for the so-called bouncing bombs used in the famous Dam Busters raid during the Second World War.
Hampton Hill - rural pleasures Near urban domains
Despite being relatively close to the centre of London, Hampton Hill can feel rural thanks to Bushy Park, the second largest of London’s Royal Parks. Most of it is open to the public. As well as containing several beautiful walks and picturesque sites, it’s also home to various deer and Teddington’s rugby and hockey clubs. Also close by are Henry VIII’s stunning Hampton Court Palace and its gardens.
Vauxhall - it's not just cricket
Cricket fans visiting Hampton Hill can make the short rail journey from Nearby Strawberry Hill, Richmond or Twickenham to Vauxhall, the station closest to the Oval, home of Surrey CCC. From there it’s a five-minute walk to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, south London’s oldest gay venue and now a Grade II listed building.
