Things to see

Famous as the home of Rugby Union, this vast stadium also hosts American football and live music, and there are often grand finales with fireworks lighting up the sky. Enjoy the more historic side of Twickenham at the imposing Strawberry Hill House, a white Gothic Revival villa with towers and turrets. Inside there are large arch windows and high ceilings covered in intricate gilded designs. Next, tour the gardens, which have a blend of wild meadows dotted with fragrant lavender and neatly trimmed Georgian-style hedgerows. Orleans House sits on the river, close to many Twickenham hotels. A Palladian villa built in the 18th century, part of the house has been turned into the Orleans House Gallery, where oil paintings are displayed in grand rooms with marble floors and decadent Baroque-style decor.
